Two women say they were injured when Lions' Suh crashed car

Two women say they were injured when Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh crashed his car into a tree in downtown Portland, Ore., over the weekend.

Portland police originally said there were no injuries in the accident early Saturday. But police said Monday that two passengers later came forward to say they were hurt and left the scene before officers arrived.

Sgt. Pete Simpson said Monday that one woman reported bruises and soreness, and the other reported a cut to her forehead and a black eye. Their names weren't released. reported Monday that one of the women requested her name be removed from the report and all subsequent documents out of fear of retaliation from Suh or his family or friends.

Suh told police he was trying to avoid a stopped taxicab when he lost control of the 1970 Chevrolet Coupe. The car hit a curb, light pole, drinking fountain and tree.

Police say Suh wasn't impaired and wasn't cited. They aren't re-opening the investigation.

Suh declined to comment to KGW-TV.
