Multiple reports indicate Arkansas Razorbacks football coach Bobby Petrino was not alone during the Sunday night motorcycle accident that left him with broken ribs and a cracked vertebra. According to reports, the coach had a female passenger, 25-year-old Jessica Dorrell, who works for the school's athletic department.

A bio matching the name appears on the school's website:
Jessica Dorrell, a former All-SEC volleyball player, became the first female member of the fundraising staff of the Razorback Foundation in November 2009. Dorrell assists with membership and fundraising for women's athletics and is the primary coordinator of the annual Red Tie Salute to Excellence Dinner and Auction.
If true, this would certainly prolong the story, to say the least. Petrino is married.
