A flagger remains in hospital after being run down in a construction zone in Burnaby on Wednesday.
The driver sped away but has since been arrested.
Burnaby RCMP say a white SUV collided with a flagger in the 7400-block of 10th Avenue near Kingsway at around 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
Video posted to social media showed the SUV trying to merge into traffic in a construction zone. The vehicle then ran into a flagger who appeared to be trying to stop the vehicle.
“She was hurt badly.”

RCMP said the driver did not remain on the scene and took off westbound, striking another flagger. He did not sustain serious injuries.
RCMP told Global News the driver allegedly turned down a nearby street and assaulted two children, who may be related to her.
“We believe they are related to her,” said S/Sgt. Major John Buis. “They were at the scene when we arrived there. I have not heard if they were injured or not.”
The suspect was arrested but charges have yet to be laid as the investigation continues. She has not been identified but police say she is from Surrey and in her late 30s.
The flagger suffered a concussion and severe bruising.
