Full details of Gus Malzahn's automobile accident not expected – Orlando Sentinel

Full details of an automobile accident that took place this past Monday in Auburn, Alabama, involving UCF coach Gus Malzahn and another man are not expected to be known publicly.
That’s because of Alabama code surrounding written reports of accidents and the release of information from the reports. Only a small portion of the crash report has been released.
The one-page portion of the full crash report is all that will be released as a public record, a records clerk for the Auburn Police Department said in an email to the Orlando Sentinel.
The accident occurred on Moores Mill Road at the intersection of Ogletree Road shortly before 10 p.m. on April 4, according to the portion of the crash report obtained by the Sentinel through a public records request.

Malzahn was not injured in the crash, a UCF Athletics spokesperson said Tuesday.
He had traveled to Auburn on Monday to be with his wife, Kristi, to assist her mother. Kristi Malzahn’s father, Wesley Otwell, died two weeks ago at 75, she shared on Facebook.
Malzahn was driving a 2021 Chevy Tahoe and the other man involved was driving a 2015 Indian Scout motorcycle, the report said.
According to WRBL, a CBS-affiliated television station, the motorcyclist was flown to a trauma center in critical condition, but police said the person is expected to recover.
The point of initial impact for the motorcycle was at the very front, while the point of initial impact for Malzahn’s vehicle was the right front corner of his vehicle, according to the report.
The speed of both vehicles was unknown, the report said. Both were towed to the Auburn police department impound lot, according to the report.
Brian Stultz of AuburnSports.com was the first to report the incident, citing multiple sources.
Malzahn returned to UCF football practice Thursday. The UCF coach hasn’t spoken to the media since the accident occurred.
The Knights held their 11th practice Saturday and have two more practices scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday before next weekend’s spring game in the Bounce House.
