(GREENFIELD) - An injured Bald Eagle that was rescued from the side of the interstate in Greenfield has died.

A passerby called for help around 6:30 Wednesday morning after seeing the eagle sitting in the median of I-70.

Officers with the Greenfield Police Department called in wildlife rehabilitation expert Rick Hutson to capture the bird and take it to a special veterinarian for treatment. Hutson said it appeared that the eagle had been hit by something that had broken one of its wings.

The eagle was taken to a veterinarian that specializes in birds and wild animals but later died during treatment.
