RCMP are searching for a car after a traffic control worker was struck in a construction zone on St. Margarets Bay Road.

Police say a flag worker was on the edge of the road around 12 p.m. when a vehicle sped through the construction zone and hit her near Riverview Drive. 

RCMP Cpl. Scott MacRae said the silver or grey Honda CRV, driven by a man, did not stop.

MacRae said other workers took the injured woman to hospital.

She is expected to survive.

The Department of Labour and Advanced Education is investigating.
