A Framingham police officer was expected to be released Wednesday evening from Massachusetts General Hospital after being struck by a vehicle the previous day, according to Framingham Police.
Lieutenant Mike Siaba was working a detail Tuesday for Lewis Tree Services near the intersection of Maple Street and Maple Lane when he was struck by a vehicle driven by an 85-year-old woman who lives in the area, said Framingham police spokesman Lieutenant Ron Brandolini.
"She didn't see him. She drove into him at about 15 miles per hour," Brandolini said.
Brandolini said Siaba was knocked unconscious and was airlifted to Mass. General. According to Brandolini, Siaba experienced "a sore hip and a concussion, but he's going to be fine."
The driver's name has not been released. The incident is under investigation by State and Framingham police.
