The story of Bobby Petrino's motorcycle crash took a dramatic turn on Thursday afternoon, when reports surfaced that a 25-year-old female was also a passenger on the bike during the crash. Jessica Dorrell, who works in Arkansas' athletic department, was reportedly traveling with Petrino during the accident.
The police report from the Arkansas State Police clearly lists Dorrell as a passenger with Petrino at the time of the accident. The report also indicates that the State Police interviewed both Petrino and Dorrell on Tuesday, speaking with Petrino at his office at Razorback Stadium. Dorrell also signed a witness statement in which she provided few details, indicating that she did not know the cause of the crash. (PDF of complete Arkansas State Police Report)
The police report conflicts with initial reports and Arkansas' initial statements that Petrino was in an accident that involved no other individuals.
