UA Football Coach Bobby Petrino was in a motorcycle accident at 6:45 p.m. last night on state Hwy. 16 near the Crosses community in Madison County, about six miles south of Elkins. State Police spokesman Bill Sadler said the motorcycle left the road, but he did not know if it struck anything off road. He said the trooper's full report will be ready in two to three business days.

I've got a call into Northwest Regional Hospital in Springdale but have not been able to get a condition report.

UPDATE: "A source close to Petrino told [ESPN reporter Joe] Schad the coach is 'pretty banged up' but 'will recover,' " ESPN reports.

UPDATE II: The UA has released a statement:

Coach Petrino was involved in a motorcycle accident on Sunday evening that involved no other individuals. 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.

Jeff Long, director of athletics and vice chancellor, said he has been in touch with the Petrinos and added that he will consult with the family to provide additional information at a later time. Until then, there will be no further information or comment on the accident per the Petrinos' request.
