LOUISVILLE — Darryl Isaacs, a Kentucky lawyer known as the "Heavy Hitter" and the "Kentucky Hammer" to television audiences who see his commercials, is recovering in a hospital after being hurt in a bicycle wreck.
The Courier-Journal says the 50-year-old Isaacs was hit by a motorist Jan. 19 east of downtown.
University of Louisville Hospital spokesman David McArthur said Tuesday that Isaacs is in fair condition.
Indian Hills Police Chief Kelly Spratt said Isaacs was hit from behind as he attempted to turn into a residential area and is lucky to be alive. Witnesses and Isaacs told police he was signaling the turn when he was hit and was thrown back into the car's windshield and on to the pavement.
Never miss a local story.
Spratt said the driver told police he didn't see Isaacs because of the sun's glare.
