Penn State QB reports that his car took the brunt of the damage in a Thursday night collision. Get the lowdown and see what Clark had to say.

Daryll Clark, the quarterback of No. 11 Penn State, was involved in a traffic accident in State College Thursday evening.

According to Clark, it happened while he was driving on Westerly Parkway about 8:30 p.m., when an SUV pulled into the path of his 1998 Chevy Lumina. Clark broadsided the SUV.

“I'm fine,” he said at Penn State's Capital One Bowl Media Day function Friday. “I was just upset because it messed up my Lumina.”

Clark said police arrived at the scene and determined the other driver to be at fault. The driver apparently did not know who Clark was.

“He was in such shock, I don't think he knew,” Clark said. “He kept apologizing for it.”

The Nittany Lions will face LSU in the Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day. Clark practiced Friday and seemed to be fine physically during the short portion of the session that was opened to the media.

When a reporter jokingly asked if the SUV had Louisiana plates, Clark took it in stride.

“He didn't,” Clark said. “I would have been really mad (if he did).”

Clark reported that the Lumina will take weeks to repair and that he'll be driving a loaner in the meantime. He was just happy his car took the brunt of the damage from the collision.

“As long as everyone is OK, that's all that really matters,” he said.
