Car strikes a 26-year-old man, dragging him along the road in Orell, Louisville Metro Police report.
According to an LMPD officer, when police arrived at Blevins Gap Road, they found the dragged man lying on the pavement with extensive injuries. The driver involved in the incident was also at the scene, police stated.
LMPD reported that the driver was traveling along Medora Road, toward the intersection with Blevins Gap Road. The driver told the police that he saw what he thought was a trash bag in the road. As he drove over the object, it felt as though the vehicle had hit snow or ice, police reported.
Subsequently, the driver turned onto Blevins Gap Road. This was when he noticed that the vehicle was moving awkwardly. Therefore, he decided to pull over, and this is when he discovered a man under his car, police reported. The driver reportedly backed the vehicle off of the victim and called police.
First responders transported the victim to a nearby hospital with severe trauma. Later, he was flown by helicopter to U of L Hospital. He is expected to recover from his injuries, however.
Authorities are still investigating the accident and have not filed charges against the driver at this time.
