LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska kicker Mauro Bondi broke his collarbone when he crashed his motorcycle on the north side of Lincoln.

The accident occurred about 6:30 p.m. Thursday when Bondi failed to negotiate a curve on his 2004 Suzuki and struck a curb. Bondi told police he thought he was traveling about 45 mph. Alcohol or drugs were not a factor.

Police spokeswoman Katie Flood said a roommate drove Bondi to a hospital, where he was treated and released.

The junior from Boca Raton, Florida, handles kickoffs for the Cornhuskers, who host Miami on Saturday night. Freshman Drew Brown kicks field goals and extra points.
