A police officer was flown to the hospital Monday after suffering serious head injuries in a construction incident in Milford, MA.

The officer was hit in the head by a Bobcat construction vehicle while working at an Eversource job on Water Street, according to police.

Officer Nate Hathaway suffered serious injuries when he was hit in the head by a bucket attached to a Bobcat machine.

Hathaway and another officer were directing traffic when Hathaway was struck by the Bobcat and knocked unconscious. 

The Milford Police Chief says doctors are worried about possible internal bleeding. "We're praying and hopeful for his speedy recovery," Chief Thomas O'Loughlin told WCVB TV.
