UK Safety Lowery Hurt In Car Accident In Georgia

Kentucky safety Ashely Lowery has been hospitalized in Georgia with injuries suffered in a car accident early Saturday morning. According to the Georgia State Police, Lowery's Nissan Altima overturned several times, ejecting Lowery from the vehicle in the process and he landed approximately 100 feet from where the vehicle came to rest. Lowery was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center by ambulance after medical helicopters were unable to fly due to weather. Georgia State Police also confirmed that Lowery was listed in serious condition and in the intensive care unit. The investigation as to how Lowery lost control of his vehicle is still on-going. Lowery played in eight games last season as a sophomore, all starts, and ranked fifth on the team with 43 tackles. He had a career-best nine stops against Vanderbilt and recorded his first career interception that was returned for 21 yards.

Orb splashed through the slop to win the Kentucky Derby, coming from far back in the pack and giving Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey his first victory in the 3-year-old classic.

But in the deep stretch, Orb prevailed, carrying Joel Rosario to his first Derby win. Long shot Golden Soul was second with Revolutionary third. Orb, the 5-1 favorite, ran the 1¼ miles in 2:02.89
