Morgan man remains in critical condition
A Morgan County man who was thrown from the back of a truck just a day after getting his throat cut was still in critical condition Saturday evening. A Huntsville Hospital spokeswoman said Hubert Paul Woods, 27, was in the neuro-intensive unit.
Woods was thrown from the back of a pickup Thursday when it collided with another vehicle at about 4:15 p.m. on Indian Hills Road at Burleson Mountain Road, a half-mile south of Decatur, authorities said.
According to Morgan County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Jodie King, Woods received 11 stitches in his neck Wednesday at Decatur General Hospital after his roommate allegedly cut him with a carpet knife during a drunken argument at his Indian Hills Road mobile home. David Lee Pugh, 45, is facing a charge of second-degree assault from the 8:45 p.m. incident.
