Texas All-American cornerback Aaron Ross was taken to a local hospital this morning after an apparent wreck as he was on his way to practice.
Pflugerville police were called to Casa Garcia restaurant for an alleged robbery attempt. However, when they got there, they discovered Ross, who was disoriented. He was transported to St. David's hospital by EMS.
Pflugerville Police Captai Jim McLean said that after officers checked Ross, they determined that there was no robbery attempt. His car was parked to the side of the restaurant, and showed some scratches, indicating Ross may have driven off the road.
McLean said Ross was very cooperative, but had problems answering the officers' questions. EMS was then called. McLean said there was no evidence to suggest Ross was intoxicated.
Texas spokesman John Bianco said Ross did miss practice. Texas' workouts started at 9 a.m. The team broke afterwards for a three-day holiday. They report to San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl, Christmas afternoon.
Police arrived at 9:10 a.m. An EMS spokesman said an ambulance was sent to the restaurant at 9:30.
