Ndamukong Suh Lied About Car Crash, According To Passengers

Ndamukong Suh was involved in an automobile crash in Portland, Ore., over the weekend, though initial reports indicated that everyone was fine and the Detroit Lions defensive tackle was not at fault. The passengers in Suh's classic car have apparently changed their stories since, however, as they are now saying he lied to the police.

The new details come by way of KGW in Portland, Suh's hometown and apparent location as he awaits the end of his two-game suspension.

Two of the people who were passengers in the car have since come forward with information that disputes Suh's story and the amended police report also quotes a third passenger who said she, too, was injured in the crash.

"When the light turned green, he floored it," one of the passengers told KGW. "I just remember going so fast and it was violent and just getting thrown around like rag dolls."

The woman said she was injured in the crash and on Monday, she had a cut upper eyebrow, a black eye and a busted lip, which she said had required stitches. A second passenger backed up her claims but did not want to speak on camera.

It doesn't appear that Suh is facing any further scrutiny from the police, however, as a spokesman issued the following statement to KGW.

"At no point did anyone there tell an officer that he [Suh] was driving out of control," said Sgt. Pete Simpson with the Portland Police Bureau. "The crash doesn't meet our threshold for investigation which is vulnerable road user, DUI, or serious trauma injury."
