Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was involved in a car crash early Saturday morning. No one was injured and officers report that he was not impaired.

Ndamukong Suh was involved as the driver in a one-car automobile crash early Saturday morning, according to reports. The Detroit Lions defensive tackle is back in Portland, Ore., while serving his two-game suspension for stomping on Green Bay Packers player Evan Dietrich-Smith during the Lions' annual Thanksgiving game.

It's unclear as to what caused the crash, which happened at 1:15 a.m., as responding officers determined that Suh wasn't impaired in anyway and simply lost control of the car. The Oregonian's Jason Quick said that it may have been icy, though that wasn't cited in the report from KOIN in Portland:

Officers arrived found a 1970 Chevrolet Coupe that crashed into a tree. Officers learned that the driver, 24-year-old Ndamukong Suh of Portland, lost control of the car as he drove southbound on 3rd Avenue crossing Burnside and hit a curb, light pole, drinking fountain, and a tree.

Suh was uninjured along with two passengers in the car, though his vehicle had to be towed from the scene. The defensive lineman is a Portland native, having played at Grant High School before going to Nebraska and eventually entering the NFL.
