A man from West Virginia was found lying face down on the side of the road near Buffalo Shoals and Waterfalls Drive on April 7, 2020. Hershel Coleman Jr, of West Virginia, was spotted by passing motorists this afternoon. Reports indicate he seemed to be “…yelling at someone that wasn’t there. Then he just fell on the ground.”

When passing motorists stopped, Coleman was initially unconscious. 911 was called, and EMS soon arrived. A Lincoln County Sheriff just happened to be driving by and stopped to assist as well. Coleman seems to have suffered facial injuries and did not appear to be struck by any vehicles. Several motorists tended to Coleman’s injuries until EMS arrived and transported him to Atrium Health – Lincoln for treatment.
