It was previously reported that NLCRPD patrols were dispatched to the intersection of Route 501 and East Newport Road for a report of a man down on the roadway, subject was reported to be unresponsive. NLCPRD patrols arrived in less than one minute and found a male suffering from lacerations and extensive bleeding. The subject was unable to be interviewed due to the level of consciousness and medical conditions requiring immediate emergency treatment. The subject was transported by EMS for hospital-based emergency medical care. No further information concerning the victim, or his condition was available at the time of the initial news release.
