New details emerge from Suh's auto accident over the weekend in Portland, Oregon (Getty Images)

Suspended Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was in a one-car accident Saturday in his hometown of Portland, Oregon. Officers on the scene determined that Suh wasn't impaired and "simply lost control of his vehicle." Neither Suh nor the two other passengers in the car were injured according to the report.

Two days later, two passengers in the car told KGW 8 Portland that Suh lied to police about the accident.

Suh's original story to police was that he was trying to pass a taxicab when he lost control of his car. The two passengers now have a different account of what happened.

“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 sustained injuries in the wreck including a cut on her eyebrow, black eye and a busted lip. Suh, according to reports, was among those who called 911. When he was asked “Are you sure you don’t need an ambulance?” he said, “Yes, everyone is fine.”

More details via KGW:
Yet the female passenger told KGW she did ask Suh to call an ambulance. She said he refused and told her she was fine. She eventually walked down the street and had her husband pick her up and take her to Oregon Health and Science University for treatment.

The woman said nearly 50 people swarmed Suh’s car after the crash and started snapping photos and she felt he was more worried about his image than her injuries.
The amended police report now says that there were four people in the car, not three, and that one person was seriously injured.

Still, authorities told KGW that they have no plans for issuing any citations from the accident. “At no point did anyone there tell an officer that [Suh] was driving out of control,” said Sgt. Pete Simpson. “The crash doesn’t meet our threshold for investigation which is vulnerable road user, DUI, or serious trauma injury.”

Has this a-hole been roid tested? Something bad is going to happen to this jackass and I cannot wait to see what it is. I just hope it doesn't involve innocent people. 

Suh=scumbag

I think you might be the only scumbag on this thread, but thanks for stopping by anyway.   What Suh did on the field was flat out stupid, no doubt about it and he deserved the 2 game suspension the NFL handed out.   But to call him a scumbag because he got into a car accident is almost as stupid as what he did.  And it's not like cops don't charge athletes with dui's or dangerous driving or other things, they do it all the time and we constantly read about it.  If Suh was drunk or high, he would have been charged.  If he was driving that crazy I'm certain the idiots in his car would have told the cops and asked for a ride home.  It would have been on a police report and much easier to sue the insurance company which by the way is the only way these idiots get any money.... won't be from Suh.

SUH-E

As Suh passed by the alleged taxi cab, did he stick his foot out the window and try to kick it and then lost control of his car? Just wondering?

I think this guy needs some anger management and real soon. If he doesn't get mental help then he will be out of football farily soon no matter how good he or anyone else believes he is...Suh is a head case and a destructive person like him on a team is a problem for the entire team. Detroit Lions management do the right thing and get him some help immediately.

After the husband took his wife to the hospital, do you think he wondered WTF she was doing driving around with Suh in the early morning!?

 You stepped on your di**, Suh, just be a MAN and say it like it is.  He ducks, dodges, and avoids the truth like it's a hand grenade.  A little integrity goes a long way.

Let's be real.  The dude lies about stuff that is on video tape.  So why would we expect him to tell the truth when there were no cameras there?

Looks like the woman is looking for $$$$$$.  Why would a married woman be in the car with Suh anyway?
