A 38-year-old Surrey woman is facing several charges in connection with the hit and run of two flaggers last month.
Burnaby RCMP say a white SUV collided with a flagger in the 7400-block of 10 Avenue near Kingsway at around 11:30 a.m on June 28.
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.

When police arrived on the scene shortly after, they found one flag person had serious injuries and a second flagger had also been struck a littler further along in the construction zone. The second flagger’s injuries were minor and non-life threatening.
The driver, who has been identified as Brenda Ouma Argay, did not stay at the scene.
Shortly after the hit and run incident, police received a complaint about a woman assaulting two children on a nearby street in Burnaby. Police said after arriving at the scene of the alleged assault, they learned the suspect was the driver of the vehicle in the hit and run. The children involved were related to the suspect and staff from the Ministry of Children and Family Development were called in and are now involved with the children.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Burnaby RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
