On June 8, 2017 at approximately 12:15 pm West Shore RCMP responded to a motor vehicle collision involving a single vehicle and traffic flagger on Sooke Road and Luxton Avenue. Initial reports from witnesses were that the flagger was attempting to stop a vehicle travelling in the east bound lane when she was struck by small grey hatchback.

The impact of the collision sent both the vehicle and flagger into the ditch.

Emergency personnel including BC Ambulance Service and Langford Fire Department attended the scene and facilitated the rescue of the flagger who was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

This incident is a reminder to all motorists to take extra caution in construction zones and highway projects where flaggers and work crews are working, states Corporal Chris Dovell, spokesperson for the West Shore RCMP.

This collision remains under investigation by the West Shore RCMP Traffic Unit and Worksafe BC.
