Deputies did not say if O'Brien or the driver of the motorcycle, 45 year old Joseph Silva of Elkhart, were injured. Silva's passenger, Emily Silva, was taken to Three Rivers Health to be treated for minor injuries.

O'Brien was wearing his seatbelt and the Silvas were wearing helmets at the time of the collision. The Newberg Township Fire Department assisted deputies at the scene.
