Bobby Petrino Motorcycle Accident, Bobby Petrino veered off a two-lane highway in the rolling hills of northern Arkansas Sunday night, crashing his motorcycle and winding up in the hospital. State Police spokesman Bill Sadler confirmed that the Arkansas coach was taken to a hospital. Petrino’s family said that Petrino is in “stable condition.”

“Coach Petrino was involved in a motorcycle accident on Sunday evening that involved no other individuals,” the statement said. “He is in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery. Our family appreciates respect for our privacy during the recovery and we are grateful for the thoughts of Razorback fans at this time.”

Athletic director Jeff Long said he met with Petrino and his wife, Becky, at a hospital, but disclosed no details of any injuries. “Coach Petrino is resting comfortably and is encouraged by the progress of his recovery.”

“I know that he is very much looking forward to returning to spring practice at the earliest opportunity.”

The accident occurred near the small town of Crosses, 20 miles southeast of Fayetteville. Arkansas Highway 16 is a winding road popular with motorcyclists. Sadler said Petrino’s motorcycle left the highway and crashed, adding that it will take 2-3 days before Petrino’s accident report is available.

The Razorbacks weren’t scheduled to practice Monday, but the team did gather in the afternoon for a previously scheduled meeting. Arkansas is scheduled to practice today, Wednesday and Friday this week, and it was not clear how Petrino’s accident would affect that.
