The patrol says Yates drove into the path of an SUV driven by a 62-year-old woman while making a turn on Risden Road. Yates was tossed from the mower after being struck.
The woman is a neighbor of Yates, and was treated for minor injuries at the scene.
The accident remains under investigation. The patrol says alcohol doesn't appear to be a factor in the accident.
