Police found the 40-year-old man in a “distressed state” on the motorway around 4:50 a.m. because his penis was reportedly cut off. Officials shut down the two-lane motorway to conduct a search of the roadway and a nearby grassy area, according to police. The shut down backed traffic up for hours causing many drivers to alter their morning plans.
The man was rushed to a nearby hospital and placed in a medically-induced coma. Officials attempted to interview the unidentified man, while we was conscious early Friday morning. However, as a result of the man’s state, officials were unable to establish how his injuries came about.
“Investigations are at a very early stage and we have not ruled out any line of enquiry. Officers are hoping they will be able to get more information when they speak to the injured man,” a police spokesman said.
