The Eagle-Tribune in North Andover, Massachusetts reported on a Windham police officer who was recently injured on the job while directing traffic on Route 111. The incident occurred last Thursday while police Officer Bryan Smith was at a construction project at the corner of Range Road and Route 111.
Smith was struck in the back by the driver’s side mirror of a pick-up truck driven by Paul Norton, 45, of Manchester. Smith sustained back injuries and was transported to Parkland Medical Center.
This is the second time an officer has been hit by a car this summer in almost the same spot on this same construction project. In June, Officer Greg Malisos was hit by a sport utility vehicle which knocked him into a 4-foot ditch.
In the summer of 2007, Derry police Officer Robert Moore was seriously injured by a pickup truck. Moore was directing traffic on Route 28. The driver who struck him was charged with DWI.
