Kasch says the worker was transported to hospital with minor injuries.
She adds the driver was stopped on Highway Six and was found to be impaired.
She says a 37-year-old man from Wiikwemkoong was charged with impaired, blowing over, dangerous operation, failure to remain at the scene of an accident and having open liquor in the vehicle.
Kasch adds the man is to appear in Gore Bay court on June 22nd to answer to the charges.
