Police have seized the driver’s license of a man in his 40s after he hit a traffic guard with his car in Bergen on Friday morning.

The driver is also suspected of driving under the influence, newspaper Bergensavisen writes.

“The injured man was in pain when he was taken away in an ambulance. As of now, it does not appear to be a serious injury,” operations manager Stine Mjelde in the Western Police District told the newspaper.

The driver was taken to the emergency room to take a blood sample.

“The police take driving under the influence seriously. If it turns out that this was the case here, then it is extra worrying,” the operations manager added.

The traffic guard was transported to the emergency room at Haukeland Hospital.
