Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino has been hospitalized following a motorcycle crash last night. According to police this morning, Petrino’s cycle veered of a highway and no other vehicles were involved in the wreck. A police spokesman said Petrino was taken to a hospital in Washington County last night but that he did not know the coach’s condition or whether he is still hospitalized.
Sources told ESPN.com’s Joe Schad that the coach “did not suffer life-threatening injuries and is expected to recover.” A “source close to Petrino” told Schad that Petrino is “pretty banged up.”
Tom Murphy of The Arkansas Democrat Gazette has tweeted the following:
“Source close to situation said Bobby Petrino had multiple broken ribs, “all kinds of cuts and bruises,” neck sprain, but going to be OK.”
Petrino is “an avid motorcycle enthusiast” according to the AP report. The crash happened about 7:45pm ET last night about 23 miles southeast of Fayetteville.
Arkansas’ coach is expected to try to return to practice as soon as possible, but no one knows how long it will take him to recover.
Bobby Petrino is a lucky man.
