The crash ejected Mitchell from his motorcycle, causing serious but not life-threatening injuries, according to the new release. He was initially transported to Mercy Willard Hospital by ambulance and was later flown to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo. Mitchell was wearing a helmet during the crash.
Crooks was cited for failing to yield from a private drive. She was wearing her seat belt and was not injured.
