BRYAN, Texas (AP) – A longtime adviser to Texas Gov. Rick Perry is in critical condition at a hospital in Central Texas after a motorcycle crash.

According to a report by the Austin American-Statesman, Jay Kimbrough crashed his motorcycle around 6 p.m. Friday. No further information on the crash was immediately available.

Kimbrough has had a storied career in Texas government and has served in multiple posts, including deputy chancellor of the Texas A&M System and assistant director of Homeland Security for the Department of Public Safety.
