The RCMP is looking for the driver of a vehicle after he allegedly dragged a worker who was manning a barricade at a flooded road in Maugerville, N.B.
The vehicle was stopped at the barricade on Route 105 around noon Wednesday.
Police say the driver became agitated and fled the scene, dragging one of the workers who was manning the barricade a short distance.

Police say the vehicle was later spotted driving erratically on the south side of Fredericton, leaving the Princess Margaret Bridge at the Forest Hill exit.
