On Friday, April 26th, A Billerica police officer died after he was struck by an excavator at a construction site.

Sergeant Ian Taylor, 49, was helping to direct a tractor-trailer around a construction site shortly before 2 p.m., when an excavator struck him while it was backing up, Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan said at a news conference Friday evening.

Taylor was taken to Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington where he died from his injuries, she said.

Sergeant Taylor was on the job for 21 years, serving the City of Lawrence, Town of Wilmington, and Town of Billerica. Taylor is survived by his Wife Mindy, two children Nathan and Kylee, and loving family.

“He is an unbelievable police officer. We were lucky to grab him and have him work with us since 2011. He’s been here for 12 years,” Billerica Police Chief Roy Frost said at the conference. “Sergeant Taylor has done a lot for this community, for the community of Billerica and for the region.”
