Doctor: Too Soon For Prognosis On Toledo Mayor's Recovery

Toledo Mayor, D. Michael Collins

A doctor in Ohio says the mayor of Toledo is still in critical condition a day after he suffered cardiac arrest while driving during a snowstorm.
 
The mayor's condition hasn't changed and he remained heavily sedated Monday.
 
Mayor D. Michael Collins has been in intensive care since he was found unconscious after crashing his SUV into a utility pole Sunday. Two passers-by broke out a window to reach the mayor before performing CPR.
 
His doctor says it's too early to know the timing or likelihood of his recovery.
 
The 70-year-old Collins was in his first term as mayor of Ohio's fourth-largest city. He was thrust into the spotlight last summer when Toledo's water supply was contaminated by toxins in Lake Erie.
