The Courier-Journal reported Sunday that Kentucky safety Ashely Lowery is awake and responsive following a serious car crash in Georgia on Saturday morning.

Lowery was ejected from his seat after rolling his car and had been under sedation in intensive care at Northeast Georgia Medical Center since the accident, according to the report.

The sophomore from Cleveland, Ga., is now able to move all his extremities, and a breathing tube has been removed, the Courier-Journal reported.

Lowery had 43 tackles and an interception for the Wildcats in 2012.
