Another flag person has been hurt after a collision at a highway construction zone, this time on Wednesday evening south of St. Walburg near Paradise Hill in northwest Saskatchewan.
Two vehicles were involved in the collision at the intersection of Highway 3 and 26. A car was stopped at the construction zone when it was hit in the back by a truck.
The 48-year-old woman driving the car and the 17-year-old boy working as a flag person were taken to hospital with undetermined injuries.
It’s not clear with what or how the flag person was hit.
It was raining at the time of the collision, but RCMP are still determining if that was a factor in the crash. No charges have been laid as officers continue to investigate.
Just last week, the trial for Keith Dunford wrapped up in Weyburn. He is accused of hitting and killing 18-year-old flag person Ashley Richards in an orange zone three years ago. A decision is expected in October.
