PONTIAC, Mich. (MyFox Detroit)
- L. Brooks Patterson, Oakland County's top elected official, has been moved to a hospital rehabilitation unit, where he continues to recover from a traffic accident earlier this month.

A spokesperson from Patterson's office said Wednesday that he's in good spirits at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac.

Patterson met with Chief Deputy County Executive Gerald Poisson on the status of his recommended budget Tuesday. "I spent an hour with Brooks yesterday and he's in good spirits," Poisson said. "Brooks is looking forward to when he returns to the Executive Office Building."

A discharge date hasn't been set.

Patterson was not wearing a seatbelt in the Aug. 10 crash in the Detroit suburb of Auburn Hills and has had surgery to repair broken bones. He also had a gash to his scalp.

Paterson's driver and two people in the other vehicle were injured. The driver of the other vehicle has been charged in the crash.
