A passenger on Dorsey's motorcycle, Christi Louise Dorsey, 59 of Claremore, was transported by Medi-flight to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where she was admitted for head, arm, trunk and leg injuries. She is listed in critical condition.

Sacket was transported by Major County EMS to St. Mary's Regional Hospital in Enid, where she was admitted for a leg injury. The Highway Patrol reports she is listed in stable condition.
