His vehicle struck a 2001 Suzuki XL-7 heading east on Queen City Avenue, the statement reads.

Cincinnati fire crews responded and had to extricate Bailey from his vehicle, according to police.

Bailey and the driver of the Suzuki, William Banks, 49, were taken in ambulances to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, the statement reads.

Both suffered serious injuries, according to police.
