Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh settled a lawsuit filed by a woman who was in Suh’s car when he crashed in his hometown of Portland, Oregon in December 2011. Saadia Van Winkle, the plaintiff, was a passenger in Suh’s car.  Her suit sought $1 million from Suh claiming negligence, recklessness and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The suit also accused Suh of lying to 911 operators saying that nobody in the accident was injured. According to a Detroit Free Press report, Suh paid Van Winkle $130,000 to settle the suit, reportedly the same amount that Suh offered the plaintiff before the suit was filed.  Van Winkle also told the Free Press that, as part of the settlement, she refused refused to sign confidentiality and non-disparagement agreements. Suh’s attorney, Mike Lehner, said that, ”this was more than we think a jury would have given, but it ended the case for Ndamukong, and that’s what we wanted.” Van Winkle says that she still suffers from neck pain and has a scar on her face from where she needed stitches. “Another reason I don’t feel it’s over is because I know he will continue to display this aggressive behavior, which is all he’s done since the accident. When he kills someone or himself with his insane driving, I will be the first witness in line to share what I experienced.” I don’t consider myself a Suh fan, but to say “when he kills someone” is going a bit overboard, Miss.  Yes, he’s had two traffic run-ins since the accident in question (story 1 and story 2), but the “when” is a pretty strong statement.
