Two women told police in Portland, Ore., that Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was driving too fast when he wrecked his car in a crash early Saturday morning.

Suh, who is currently serving a two-game suspension for stomping on an opponent's arm, lost control of his 1970 Chevrolet Coupe and ran into a water fountain, a light post and a tree early Saturday morning.

The 24-year-old had not been drinking and was cooperative with police, telling officers no one was injured.

However, two women who said they were passengers in the car came forward and told police they left the scene before police arrived to avoid a a large crowd. They said they both went to a hospital to receive treatment.

According to initial police reports, Suh claimed he lost control of the vehicle when he attempted to veer around a parked taxi.

The women told police they did not see a taxi and the accident resulted from Suh driving "too fast." The women asked to have their names removed from the police report for fear of relatiation.

“When the light turned green, he floored it,” one of the passengers told television station KGW. “I just remember going so fast and it was violent and just getting thrown around like rag dolls.”

Police said they do not plan to re-open an investigation into the accident.

Suh was suspended two games for stomping on the arm of Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith during the Lions' Thanksgiving Day loss. He sat out Sunday night's loss in New Orleans and will sit out Sunday's game against Minnesota.
