Authorities say Bath was able to return to where friends were located, and was transported to Jasper Memorial Hospital by these subjects in a personal vehicle.

Bath was treated for abrasions to the legs and back injuries.

Bath was later transported to St Mary's Hospital in Evansville for further treatment.

No word on his condition.
