Passengers were injured in Ndamukong Suh's wreck

Suspended Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said the passengers in his car when he wrecked in Portland early Saturday morning were not injured.

That’s not the case, according to KGW-TV, and two people in the car needed medical attention at a hospital. One woman required stitches to close a cut on her forehead. There were a total of three passengers in the vehicle along with Suh, who was not injured when his 1970 Chevrolet Coupe crashed into a tree.

KGW acquired audio of the 911 call by Suh and he clearly told the dispatcher that everyone involved in the wreck was fine.

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 who required stitches also had a black eye and busted lip. The passengers asked the TV station and police to protect their identities because they fear for their safety.

The amended police report reflects that three passengers were in the vehicle with Suh and one was seriously injured. Police have declined to re-open an investigation.

Suh, who is serving a two-game suspension from the NFL, declined to comment when reached by KGW.
