There were no serious injuries when a flagger was struck by a vehicle while guarding a work site at the intersection of Mount Edward and Sherwood roads Wednesday.
The incident happened about 1:30 p.m. involving a crew working on power lines.
The vehicle which hit the flagger was the utility truck doing the work at the location, said a spokesperson for Charlottetown Police Services. The truck was in the process of backing up to move into a new position when it bumped the flagger.
Emergency services were called as a precaution and the worker was taken to hospital but no injuries were reported, said police.
