Traffic Flagger Struck By Full Beer Can

RCMP in Sicamous are investigating a Monday assault on a flag person.

It was around 9AM when the male flagger was hit on the head by a full beer can tossed from a vehicle.

He had been setting up a sign on Highway One, just West of Sicamous when it happened.

The impact knocked the man's hard hat and glasses off, and Police say that he could have been seriously injured.

The offending vehicle has been described as a smaller black car with no front license plate.

The RCMP were not able to track that vehicle down after this incident was reported.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact their local Police.
