Pontiac, Michigan -- Doctors and staff at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac will continue to care for County Executive L. Brooks Patterson throughout the weekend as he recovers from orthopedic injuries sustained in Friday's two vehicle accident in Auburn Hills.
"Brooks is in excellent hands at McLaren," said Chief Deputy County Executive Gerald Poisson. "He is resting comfortably as he begins the healing process."
Doctors have not determined when Patterson may return home.
Oakland County is not releasing any information about Patterson's driver because of HIPPA and his family's wishes for privacy.
The next update will be issued later in the day Sunday by press release and recorded message for media only at 248-858-1048.
