Early Saturday morning, Lions star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, currently suspended by the NFL, was involved in a single-car accident in downtown Portland.
According to Portland Police, via KOIN Channel 6 News, officers responded to reports of a single-car that crashed into a tree at Southwest 3rd and Burnside Street in downtown Portland. Suh was the driver of the 1970 Chevrolet Coupe and, according to police, hit a curb, a light pole, a drinking fountain and a tree.
Officers determined that Suh was not impaired and "simply lost control of his vehicle." Neither Suh, a native of Portland, nor the two other passengers in the car were injured according to the report.
The timing of the incident is a bit odd -- Suh is in the middle of serving the aforementioned suspension for his now infamous actions in Detroit's Thanksgiving loss. (He appealed the suspension but lost.) But it makes sense that Suh was in Portland, primarily because the defensive tackle isn't allowed to practice with the Lions while serving his suspension.
