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 shortly after a two vehicle collision in the same area.

According to police a vehicle turning left off the highway, in the construction zone east of Salmon Arm about 11 a.m. Thursday, was hit from behind by a westbound vehicle.

The drivers were taken to hospital with whiplash type injuries.

At the same time, a 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, past the flagger attempting to stop it at the other end and. 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.

monopoly go to jailFlorida requires you to buckle up if you are driving a car. But what if the car is in your campground and not on the roadway. Is that an exception?

Camper Charles Ross was getting ready to leave his campground driving his car. He said he had just left his driveway and was still in the campground.

Ross said a Nassau County Sheriff’s Office deputy was on the property for something else but noticed that he was not wearing his seat belt.

“He said ‘I see you don’t have your seat belt on, I said ‘yes sir I will by the time I hit (Highway) 17.'”

U.S. Highway 17 is the main road to and from the privately operated campground where Ross lives.

“He wrote me a ticket for no seat belt,” said Ross, “I was surprised, I’m on private property.”

Ross was given a $101 ticket for violation of the seat belt law.
