Ohio man found injured by Lexington roadside

An injured Columbus, Ohio man was found lying on a road near the Clark County line Wednesday night, Lexington police said on Thursday.

Jeremy Leeper, 34, was driving from Florida to Ohio with others when the group stopped to let Leeper use the restroom, Officer Ann Gutierrez, a Lexington police spokeswoman said.

The others drove a short distance away to give Leeper some privacy, but they became concerned when he didn't return to the vehicle, Gutierrez said.

They found Leeper bleeding on the side of the road, she said.

He was taken to Clark County Regional Medical Center then airlifted to University of Kentucky Hospital. His condition was not immediately available Thursday.

Clark County sheriff's deputies contacted Lexington police about the injured man about 10:10 p.m. But police believe the injury occurred about 7 p.m.

No arrests have been made.
