Lions DT Suh unhurt in 1-car accident
Portland, OR – Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was unhurt after crashing his car early Saturday morning while swerving to avoid a taxi, police in his hometown said.
Portland police said Suh, who is serving a two-game suspension, lost control of his car after he tried to go around a taxi, striking the curb, a light pole, a water fountain and a tree after the back end of his 1970 Chevrolet Coupe spun out.
No citations were issued and police said they do not investigate non-injury, non-DUI related accidents.
Officers who spoke with Suh determined he was not impaired and said he was "polite and cooperative," according to police. Two passengers in Suh's car were also unhurt in the accident.
Suh was suspended two games by the NFL for stomping on a Green Bay Packers player on Thanksgiving. His appeal of the suspension was denied on Friday.
He is a graduate of Portland's Grant High School.
