RCMP are looking for a motorhome with Florida plates after the vehicle blew past a flagger in a construction zone on the Trans-Canada Highway near Salmon Arm Thursday.
The incident occurred about 11 a.m. shortly after a two-vehicle collision in the same area. In that incident, a vehicle turning left off the highway was struck from behind by a westbound vehicle. The drivers were both taken to hospital with whiplash-type injuries.
At the same time, the motorhome with Florida plates drove into the oncoming lane toward a flagger who was holding a stop sign.
The flagger had to move out of the way of the motorhome, which continued past the accident scene, and past the flagger attempting to stop it at the other end. It then continued west on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Police were en route to the collision and were unable to deal with the driver of the motorhome.
The licence plate has been noted and police say they will deal with the driver.
