Saturday incidents leave two hospitalized

ALBANY, Ga. -- Two separate incidents from early Saturday resulted in injuries from which two people remained hospitalized for Monday, officials say.

Reports show that at 9:14 a.m. Thomas Milton, 56, was found in the parking lot of Taco Bell at 1505 N. Slappey Blvd. with what was initially described as severe head trauma.

An early investigation into the incident revealed that he was an employee and was on the roof cleaning the arches above the logo sign. Evidence showed that, while in the process of cleaning, he fell off the roof and landed in the parking area, Albany Police Department officials say.

His injuries were described by police as a major head wound, broken ribs and a broken shoulder. He was taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.

A hospital spokeswoman said Monday afternoon that he was in fair condition — indicating that his vital signs are stable, he is conscious and that he is uncomfortable or may have minor complications.

Another individual was taken to Phoebe Saturday following an altercation that ended with the victim being run over by a vehicle, reports show.

At 3:47 a.m. at 107 S. Valencia Drive, Henrietta Reese, 56, reportedly got into an argument with 43-year-old Terrence Simpson. Reese allegedly ran over Simpson with a vehicle on purpose, causing what APD officials described as serious injuries.

Police say Reese has been charged with aggravated assault. A spokeswoman at Phoebe said that Simpson was in fair condition as of Monday afternoon.
