Prince George, B.C. –  A crash this  morning  at  the  Highway 16 widening project  near Haldi Road, sent one flag person to  hospital with minor injuries.

Around 6 this morning,  traffic control workers were  setting up  at the construction site  when their vehicle was struck by  an eastbound  Toyota Camray. haldicrash

One of the flag persons  was  hurt, and was taken to hospital and later released.  The driver of the  Toyota was not injured.

This is the second serious incident involving  traffic control  people in Prince George  in the past couple of months.  Over the summer,   a female flag person  was struck and killed at a road construction site in the Hart.   WorkSafe BC is still investigating that incident.  That incident  prompted the Mayor and RCMP to  call for drivers to be extra careful  in construction zones .
