PONTIAC (WWJ) – The L. Brooks Patterson family has been overwhelmed by the concern and calls and flowers sent in his behalf, regarding the serious car accident he was in Friday afternoon.

The family is asking that all donations be sent to the Brooksie Way Foundation.

The Brooksie Way races are named in memory of Brooks Stuart Patterson, the 28-year-old son of Oakland County Executive Brooks Patterson, who died in 2007, following a tragic snowmobile accident.

Patterson and three other people were hospitalized after a two-car crash in Auburn Hills Friday afternoon.

Patterson and a retired Michigan State Police Officer remain hospitalized Saturday morning following the accident.

Speaking live on WWJ Newsradio 950, County Chief Deputy Executive Gerald Poisson said 74-year-old Patterson has been upgraded from serious to stable condition following multiple surgeries overnight.

“Brooks remains hospitalized, he’s in stable condition, he came through the surgery well,” said Possion. “He had a gash on his head and he had some orthopedic injuries that they were performing surgery on last night involving his knee and his wrist.”

The condition of the other two people injured in the accident is not being released.

You can also send donation to The Brooksie Way, P.O. Box 81576, Rochester, MI 48308.
