Emergency responders from multiple cities, including Southgate and Fort Thomas were on scene, as well as good samaritans who witnessed the crash.

A witness told Fort Thomas Matters that she saw the motorcycle go ten feet in the air after the collision and that she never saw him move from the roadway.

The man, in his seventies from Highland Heights, attends church in Fort Thomas.


He was taken to University of Cincinnati hospital, where doctors began to repair several injuries, including cervical and thoracic spine injuries, a broken pelvis, multiple broken ribs, a perforated lung, fractured kneecap. There were no head injuries, but he will have a long road to recovery. He is currently being kept in the Intensive Care Unit.

  1. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. He is recovering at UC Medical Center and we hope... one day... he will walk again and return to playing his bagpipes for veterans again.
