Ndamukong Suh wrapped his 1970 Chevy Coupe around a tree, light pole and water fountain in downtown Portland early Saturday morning. Cops quickly determined he wasn’t impaired, and according to Suh, everyone in the car was fine. Suh, the surly defensive tackle of the Detroit Lions, told police he simply lost control of the car trying to go around a taxi.
Now, passengers in the vehicle – who so far have remained anonymous – are telling another story.
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 which required stitches, a black eye and a busted lip. A second passenger backed up her claims but did not want to speak on camera.
A witness named Allan who called 9-1-1 to report the crash also spoke to KGW Monday. He said the driver “floored it” when a stoplight turned green at 3rd and Burnside. He said it looked like the driver was trying to “show off” with screeching tires.
The women who were injured quickly left the scene before cops arrived. Reportedly, a swam of 50 people ran up to Suh’s car after the wreck and were taking photos.
My question: Who are these people that were in the car with Suh? Clearly not his friends, right? Otherwise, why would they come forward with damaging information to make him look bad? If they weren’t friends with Suh, who the hell were they? Random chicks he picked up at a bar? I’d guess Suh is going to be on the hook for some medical expenses. And sadly, maybe more.
