Multiple motorcycles involved in Walnut Hills accident

WALNUT HILLS (FOX19) -

Multiple motorcycles were involved in an accident in Walnut Hills.

Police say the accident occurred near the intersection of Martin Luther King and Gilbert Avenue around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.

Police say 45-year-old Manual Griffin was driving eastbound on his motorcycle on Martin Luther King when he failed to maintain control of the vehicle. Griffin's vehicle stuck the rear tire of a motorcycle operated by 31-year-old Robert Middlebrooks.

Middlebrooks was thrown from his vehicle, landing under a motorcycle driven by Crystal Steel, 34. 

Griffin's vehicle continued eastbound in a westbound lane striking a another motorcycle driven by Robert Behanan, 39, who was driving westbound.

Middlebrook sustained life-threatening injuries and was transported to University Medical Center. He is currently in critical condition.

Both Griffin and Behanan sustained non-life threatening injuries in the crash. Griffin was taken to University Medical center where he is listed in serious condition. Behanan is in serious condition at Good Samaritan Hospital.

Neither alcohol or speed appears to be a factor.

Traffic units are continuing to investigate the incident. Witnesses are asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Department's Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.
