Ndamukong Suh Car Accident – Ndamukong Suh is having the worst luck.
As if things weren’t going bad enough for suspended Detroit Lion defensive tackle, now he’s crashed his car — and it wasn’t even a model from his sponsor, Chrysler.
Suh, suspended on Thanksgiving for stomping a Green Bay Packer, was involved in a single-car accident early Saturday in his native Portland, Ore., the Detroit Free Press reports.
Instead of a Chrysler, Suh was driving a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS in the city’s nightclub district. The accident happened around 1:15 a.m., police said. Simpson said Suh had two passengers with him who were not identified and neither was injured.
“He wasn’t drunk and wasn’t driving crazy or anything. He wasn’t a jerk,” Sgt. Peter Simpson of the Portland Police is quoted by the Free Press as saying.
“I think he stomped on the gas when he was going around a taxi and lost the back end, spun around and hit a tree and a light pole and a (drinking) fountain. No injuries to anybody and he didn’t hit any other cars.”
Suh is riding out a two-game suspension for stomping Packer lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith after a play, an incident that proved embarassing for Chrysler, which was featuring Suh in a TV spot for its Chrysler 300 sedan.
Suh previously was the star of another TV spot for Chrysler, a heartwarmer in which he is seen driving to a Detroit home.
