According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free-Press, a woman from a one-car accident that Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was involved in, is suing him for $1 million in a Oregon court.

“A passenger in a one-car accident involving Ndamukong Suh last December is suing the Detroit Lions star defensive tackle for more than $1 million in Oregon court,” reported Birkett.

“In a complaint filed today, Saadia Van Winkle alleges Suh engaged in negligence, reckless driving and intentional infliction of emotional distress after he crashed his 1970 Chevrolet Coupe into a curb, light pole, drinking fountain and tree in the early-morning hours of Dec. 3 while he was serving a two-game suspension from the Lions,” wrote Birkett.

“Van Winkle’s attorney, Sarah Nelson, said her client suffered neck and back injuries in the accident and has a scar from a laceration above her eye that required stitches,” Birkett wrote.

It looks like the Lions just can’t seem to stay out of the news this year.
