Man whose daughter was injured in crash back in jail

(Continued)

Somerset —

Jimmy Jasper was struck and impaled by a fence plank in the shoulder area and also suffered a broken collarbone, broken clavicle, broken ribs, broken vertebrates, broken wrist, collapsed aorta, and a skull fracture. He spent several days in the hospital recovering from his injuries, and he has continued his recovery at home. 
Jaden Jasper spent nearly a month in the hospital in Lexington. A majority of that was spent at the University of Kentucky Medical Center, and Jaden was moved to the Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Center for a few days before she returned home in early April. 
Jaden Jasper suffered a depressed skull fracture, a broken eye socket, and a broken cheekbone. Doctors warned her family she may never be the same again, and she remained sedated for several days while medical experts debated what to do. But the young girl has exceeded expectations in her recovery. 
Jasper was indicted in early April on one charge of first-degree assault in connection with the accident, and he was arrested Friday, April 5, by the Somerset Police Department. 
Somerset Police claim Jasper’s blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit of .08.
Jimmy Jasper has pleaded not guilty to the charge. 
A trial date for Jimmy Jasper has been set for July 10, 2013.
