A man is seriously injured after being attacked near a landfill.

Lexington police say 34-year-old Jeremy Leeper of Columbus, Ohio was traveling home with friends on I-64 Wednesday night.

The friends say they turned onto Hedger Lane near a Lexington landfill for Leeper to use the bathroom.

Witnesses tell police they turned their vehicle around to give him privacy, but when they turned around again they found Leeper beaten and bleeding.

Leeper was flown to UK hospital for a head injury where he's listed in serious condition.
