ELKHART — A Dowagiac, Mich., man suffered a broken ankle, broken wrist and back injuries when the motorcycle he was driving crashed late Friday on S.R. 120 east of the city.

Ricky Phillips, 32, was taken to Elkhart General Hospital after the crash at 11:59 p.m. Friday, according to a press release from the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department.

Phillips was headed east on S.R. 120 west of C.R. 17 and told officers that the brakes on his 1986 Honda Magnum failed and he lost control.

Bellevue, the country's oldest public hospital, had been preparing for an Ebola patient in earnest since August. Ebola came to New York via Dr. Craig Spencer, who had been treating patients in Guinea. Spencer alerted his aid agency that he had developed a fever, and was transported to Bellevue by specially trained emergency workers cloaked in protective gear. (AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)
