Professional baseball pitcher turned Christian radio personality Frank Pastore remained in critical condition Tuesday after he was injured when a car collided with his motorcycle on the 210 Freeway Monday night.

The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin reports the 55-year-old Pastore was ejected from the motorcycle and found unconscious on the freeway, according to California Highway Patrol Sgt. Aaron Knarr.

Pastore, who sustained head trauma, was flown by helicopter to Los Angeles County USC Medical Center. He remained in critical condition Tuesday in the intensive care unit, according to hospital spokeswoman Rosa Saca.

"I just hope everyone is praying for him. This is a shock to all of us," Pastore's mother-in-law said. "He's a very good person. A Christian person. At this time, it's very hard. He's loved by everyone."
She said Pastore was on his way home from work Monday night when the crash happened.
