LEXINGTON — The director of the Garrard County ambulance service remained in critical condition Tuesday evening, after responding badly when doctors tried to bring him out of sedation.
Colby Arnold suffered a head injury Sunday evening while biking along Pope Road near his home. Family friend Daryl Hodge said Arnold was biking along Ky. 52 Sunday evening shortly after 5 p.m. Arnold turned onto Pope Road, and shortly after that a woman who was mowing saw his bike slip off the side of the road, causing Arnold to lose his balance.
Hodge said Arnold tried to regain his balance, but while he was doing that, his bike hit something and flipped forward. Arnold, who was not wearing a helmet, was flung head-first onto the pavement.
The woman came over to help Arnold, who was bleeding from the head but trying to get back up, Hodge said. She helped him stay on the ground until help came.
