The Ohio State Highway Patrol confirmed that both Garrett and his passenger were transported to a local hospital for medical car, and Garrett has not yet been discharged, according to TMZ.

Police have confirmed that drug and alcohol have been ruled out, and were not factors in this incident, however, it remains possible that weather conditions contributed to the crash, according to TMZ.
