Albany -- An Albany Water Gas and Light employee suffered a serious head injury in an on-the-job accident Thursday.

 Clay Adams just started working for W-G-&-L three weeks ago. He was part of a 5-man crew working at the corner of Maple and Owens about nine o'clock Thursday morning. They were pulling a power pole from the ground when something hit Adams in the head.

Investigators aren't sure if it was a cable or the boom hook.

Adams was wearing a hard hat but suffered head injuries. He underwent surgery.
