Bobby Petrino has some explaining to do

Petrino had rider in motorcycle crash

NEW DETAILS: Hog coach Bobby Petrino, shown here at a Tuesday news conference, wasnt alone when he wrecked his motorcycle last weekend, a State Police report says.
The State Police this afternoon released its report on Razorback football coach Bobby Petrino's motorcycle wreck.

The report reveals that Petrino had a rider on the back of his Harley-Davidson when he left the highway near Crosses on a Sunday evening drive on Highway 16 — Jessica Dorrell, 25, of Elkins. She's a former Razorback volleyball player who was named the first Razorback female athletic fund-raiser when she became an assistant director of the Razorback Foundation in May 2011, according to the UA website. 

Last month, she went to work directly for Petrino, when she was named the student-athlete coordinator for the football team. She's also earned an MBA. It apparently was she who flagged down a motorist to get assistance for the injured Petrino. She was not hurt in the wreck and said she didn't know what had caused it.

The report quotes Petrino as saying because of sun and wind he was unable to maneuver the bike and drove off the road. He said he tried to lay the bike down and "the next thing I know I was lying in a wood pile."
