He was later released with bruises but no broken bones. The accident is being investigated by the Department of Public Safety.
In a phone call from Mrs. Northcutt in response to KSST Morning Show Host Enola Mathews, Mrs. Northcutt said her husband Judge Eddie Northcutt is doing fairly well, but is awfully sore. His left leg is unable to bear weight, his left knee is painful and his left ankle is swollen. he has bruises and a little road rash. According to Mrs. Northcutt  when the truck hit him, he was catapulted onto the grassy ditch which helped cushion his fall. Interestingly, his bike was not crushed or even bent.
