Kentucky starting defensive back Ashely Lowery was responsive and alert on Sunday after surviving a serious auto accident in Georgia a day earlier.

Lowery was moving his extremities and was awake in intensive care at Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville, Ga., according to family spokesman Doug Stutsman,

The impact of the early Saturday morning crash in Georgia ejected Lowery, a native of Cleveland, Ga., approximately 100 feet from his overturned 2006 Nissan Altima.

The extent of Lowery’s injuries were yet to be released.

The 6-foot-1, 219-pound Ashley started eight games in 2012 as a sophomore and was the Wildcats' fifth-leading tackler with 43 stops.
