The Pirates did not have a game Tuesday night and are in Binghamton, N.Y., for a game Friday night.
In the past week, Jim Playfair, associate coach of the Phoenix Coyotes, and Sean Burke, an assistant to the general manager and goalie coach for the Coyotes, spent several days with the Pirates. Both men were scheduled to return to Phoenix on Wednesday.
In 2006, Kevin Dineen, who was the Pirates' head coach, served a 48-hour jail sentence and paid a $750 fine for driving to endanger after being charged with drunken driving in South Portland on a night out with coaches and players at the end of the season.
Wednesday's accident report includes other details:
• The concrete barrier sustained little or no damage, the road was wet but conditions were clear, the speed limit in the area is 25 mph, and there is a traffic light that was flashing at the time.
• A diagram shows that the front passenger's side of the 2003 Jeep hit the median, and that the vehicle was headed west toward High Street.
• The report also lists Petrovek's vanity license plate: "Arrrrgh."
