LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former major league baseball pitcher-turned-Christian radio personality Frank Pastore has been critically injured in a freeway motorcycle crash.
Pastore was a pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds from 1979 until 1985 and for the Minnesota Twins in 1986.
The California Highway Patrol says a car collided with Pastore's motorcycle and he was ejected on Interstate 210 in Duarte, about 25 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. He was found unconscious on the freeway Monday night.
Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center spokeswoman Rosa Saca says the 55-year-old Pastore remains in critical condition Wednesday.
The San Gabriel Valley Tribune (http://bit.ly/TYlh8x) says Pastore was on his way home from work at radio station KKLA at the time of the crash.
A statement on the KKLA website asks people to keep him in their prayers.
