Passenger in Ndamukong Suh crash wants a cool 1 million dollars
Remember that time Ndamukong Suh got into a car crash with two other women in the car? Well CBS is reporting that one of the women believes she deserves more than her medical bills and wage losses to be covered and little something something extra on top. Nooooooo she wants ONE MILLION DOLLARS.

Police at the scene determined Suh wasn’t impaired and he apparently told officers that he was trying to pass a taxi when he lost control of his car, but afterward, one passenger said Suh had lied.
“When the light turned green, he floored it,” one of the passengers told KGW in Portland at the time. “I just remember going so fast and it was violent and just getting thrown around like rag dolls.”
Now, one of the car passengers, Saadia Van Winkle, is suing him for more than $1 million.
Van Winkle filed a lawsuit last week in Oregon circuit court, and though Suh declined comment to reporters about the lawsuit, Suh’s lawyer admitted that she was entitled to some money. Van Winkle alleges Suh “engaged in negligence, reckless driving and intentional infliction of emotional distress” when he crashed his car into a light pole and tree.
There may be some judge somewhere that will give her what she wants, but it sounds really excessive. But lawsuits are typical results for people who drive like someone lit a fire under their ass. I’ll say this, it’s hard to believe that Suh got to the light and then took off like a bat out of hell but had driven like Betty White before that. If a person can’t drive like their life means something to them it’s time to call a cab. I’m giving her the benefit of the doubt and assuming it was her first ride with him. *WINK WINK* Also, I read that Van Winkle said Suh offered her $700 to lie about the crash. She should sue him just for insulting her intelligence. That number was missing AT LEAST 1 zero, probably 2.
