The accident report states that Melton, 55, was not wearing a seat-belt and was partially ejected from his  2002 Dodge Ram, causing serious injuries. He was taken to University Hospital by Life Flight Ambulance for treatment.  Melton remains at the hospital in serious condition.

Neely received only minor injuries in the crash and sought his own treatment.
