Callaway was reportedly treated by EMS at the scene, before being taken to Milford Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. According to the report, Officers on scene say they could smell alcohol, while speaking with Callaway, so a warrant was obtained for a blood draw, which was then done while Callaway was at MMH.

After the test, he was issued traffic summons for operating an OHV under the influence, and several charges relating to driving the OHV on the roadway. Officials say he stayed at MMH for treatment, but was eventually released pending a future court appearance.
