FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) – A person close to Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino says Petrino's injuries from a motorcycle crash are “not life threatening.”

The person would only comment Monday on the condition of anonymity.

State police say Petrino veered off a highway near the community of Crosses Sunday night and crashed his motorcycle.

Police spokesman Bill Sadler says Petrino was taken to a hospital for treatment, but he declined to say which hospital and said he didn't know if the coach was still at there or what his condition was.

Zack Higbee, a spokesman for Petrino, would not comment or confirm Monday that the coach was involved in the crash.
