FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- The Arkansas State Police are taking another look at the motorcycle crash involving football coach Bobby Petrino.

The accident on Sunday injured Petrino and it was later disclosed that he was riding with a female employee. He has been put on leave after admitting he failed to disclose Jessica Dorrell's presence on the ride, and that the two had an inappropriate relationship.

Authorities say they want to know how State Police Captain Lance King wound up meeting Petrino after the crash at an intersection in Fayetteville. King, who provides security for the coach during the season, then drove Petrino to a hospital.
