Mark Branham, 48, Milan, remains in the University Medical College in Toledo after a motorcycle crash Saturday night. His medical condition was unavailable.
Branham told Erie County Sheriff deputies he was driving his 2003 Harley Davidson on Ohio 113 West near Schug Road when he saw a deer in the roadway. Branham attempted to avoid the deer and went off the right side of the road, crashing the motorcycle. Branham admitted to deputies that he had consumed five beers before getting on the motorcycle. Hospital staff drew blood and took a urine specimen.
Charges pending his release from the hospital are failure to control, expired registration, no motorcycle endorsement and operating a motorcycle while intoxicated.
