Two workers injured in hit and run on Bear Mountain

West Shore RCMP seek driver of a black or grey SUV after two on foot were hit last night (Nov.5) on Bear Mountain

Police are looking for the driver of a black or grey SUV after two flaggers were hit around 6:30 last night (Nov.5) on Bear Mountain.

A female flagger, 53, held up a stop sign and motioned for the driver to halt at the intersection of Players Drive and Bear Mountain Parkway. The driver of the SUV did not stop and the flagger called for assistance from co-workers, RCMP say. The driver then said something to the woman and drove into her arm, injuring that shoulder.

The SUV then struck a 30-year-old man in the shoulder and knee.RCMP corrected an earlier statement, noting the man is line-painter at the site.

“The vehicle turned left off of Players Drive up on Bear Mountain Parkway. The vehicle travelled on the wrong side of the road, crossed the centre median and took off at a high rate of speed,” said Cst. Sarah Beckett of West Shore RCMP.

RCMP were unable to locate the vehicle and driver and are actively searching for both. The gender of the driver is unknown.

Both flaggers were transported to Victoria General Hospital via B.C. Ambulance with non-life threatening injuries.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the detachment at 250-474-2264.
