The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is investigating a possible assault, after a man was found with a head injury along side of I-25 near mile marker 125, near Ray Nixon Power Plant. The body was discovered Sunday morning by an employee leaving the power plant.

The initial report was made around 7 a.m.

The victim, only described as a 20-year-old man, suffered scrapes and cuts, along with a head injury. He's reportedly in stable condition at a Colorado Springs hospital.

El Paso County investigators say the man may have been thrown from a car, and be the victim of an assault. No word on any suspects.

    The title itself says that a man was found and was a possible assault victim. Its possible the he was unresponsive when discovered. And since he hasn't been identified yet, it makes sense to me to say "the body was discovered". It really amuses me how some people who comment on this site have nothing better to do than criticize the way in which the story was written. I'm sure news writers are human and make mistakes. The point of the story was clear so what's the big deal Pete?

    Yes, I agree...The "body" usually indicates the deceased person, not someone who needs the hospital, and will recover. Poorly written.

    Get over it Pete, you got the basics of the story.

    Does a Journalism major have to take an English class to graduate? This is really poorly-written and confusing. When you say "The body was discovered," that usually means someone died. Yet in the story on the news the person is still alive. Does anyone edit these things for content?
