Man found on Salem road with serious head, neck wounds

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A man was found by police on Wednesday morning lying on a Salem road with serious wounds to the head and neck. 

The man, who wasn't identified, was transported to Salem Health, though police didn't clarify his current condition. 

The situation was originally reported at 7:15 a.m. when a citizen called police, saying a person was injured in the road near Southeast Mill and Ford Street. 

After an investigation, police said the man and a male acquaintance got into a fight at a home close to where the injured man was found. It also happened shortly before, police said.  

The other man is cooperating with Salem Police's investigation. That investigation is ongoing, police said.
