Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is being sued for more than $1 million by a passenger in a one-car accident that involved Suh, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Saadia Van Winkle filed the complaint on Thursday, alleging that Suh was negligent and reckless in his driving and intentionally inflicted emotional distress after he crashed his car into a light pole, drinking fountain and tree last Dec. 3. Suh was serving a two-game suspension at the time.

Van Winkle’s attorney, Sarah Nelson, said her client suffered neck and back injuries and had to have stitches for a cut above her eye.

“I think what we say to that is these high-profile athletes and celebrity types always think that they can get away with this kind of stuff and they’re never held accountable,” Nelson told the Free Press. “She wants to hold him accountable and she’s taking the charges very seriously. I think a jury will do the same. His conduct at the scene of the accident was egregious.”

Suh called 9-1-1 after the accident, declined medical assistance and said everyone involved in the crash was unharmed. Van Winkle said a second female passenger later provided a conflicting story.

According to the complaint, Suh came to Van Winkle’s house uninvited the day after the accident and offered Van Winkle $700 “in an effort to buy her silence.”

Suh was not charged in the accident.
