GRAHAM COUNTY – A man who was found bloodied and lying on the highway Tuesday afternoon apparently fell while intoxicated.
First responders were dispatched at about 3:50 p.m. to the 2000 E. block of U.S. Highway 70 east of Safford near the Tower Mobile Home & RV Park regarding a 60-year-old man covered in blood lying in the roadway.
Upon arrival, a deputy located the man in the roadway but the subject believed he was in his living room. The man appeared intoxicated, according to the report, and had apparently fallen and struck his head on the asphalt.
Paramedics from Lifeline Ambulance evaluated the man, who still insisted he was in his living room. The subject was then transported to Mt. Graham Regional Medical Center for further evaluation and/or treatment.
