BRYAN - The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating whether gravel on the highway caused former deputy A&M Chancellor Jay Kimbrough to crash his motorcycle a week ago.

Investigators say last Friday the 67-year-old lost control on Highway 6 south of Navasota, flipped his motorcycle in a grassy median, and was thrown from the cycle.

Doctors at St. Joseph Hospital in Bryan say Kimbrough remains in critical condition. The close friend of Governor Perry underwent surgery Monday morning for several cracked vertebrae in his neck. Friends of the family say doctors are optimistic about his recovery.
