Traffic control agent seriously injured in hit-and-run collision

Drivers need to watch out for agents on the job

A City of Minneapolis traffic control agent has been seriously injured after being struck by a vehicle while working in Uptown last night. The 48-year-old agent, who was enforcing metered parking, was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

The incident happened on Hennepin Avenue just north of Lagoon Avenue at 10:18 p.m. The driver of the vehicle left the scene and has yet to be identified.

The accident serves as an important reminder to watch for traffic control agents. Agents have a dangerous job which requires them to be working in busy streets and intersections. Drivers to be patient, follow driving laws and watch for traffic control agents. Failure to do so could very well injure or kill someone. 

Minneapolis Police are still searching for the vehicle and driver. Anyone with information should contact investigators. Tips are anonymous.
