BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -Police investigators want to talk to Marshawn Lynch after examining the Buffalo Bills running back's vehicle, which allegedly struck and injured a pedestrian during a hit-and-run accident last weekend.
Buffalo Police Department spokesman Michael DeGeorge said Monday that investigators have attempted to contact Lynch and his lawyer. DeGeorge wouldn't go into specifics, but stressed that no charges have been filed and added police are still attempting to determine who was inside the 2008 Porsche SUV when the accident occurred, early Saturday morning.
Michael Caffery, Lynch's Buffalo-based lawyer, declined comment and also told The Associated Press that he has advised his client not to speak publicly about the investigation. Caffery added that he had just returned to Buffalo early Monday after being out of town.
Lynch, the Bills 2007 first-round draft pick out of California, has been in Buffalo taking part in a series of voluntary team practices, which resume Tuesday morning.
A female pedestrian, whom police have not identified, was treated and released from hospital after being struck while crossing an intersection near the city's downtown bar district.
Police have impounded the vehicle registered to Lynch, and discovered it has some front-end damage, DeGeorge said.
He said a police surveillance camera at the intersection was operational, but wouldn't say whether it filmed the accident.
According to a police accident report, the pedestrian was attempting to cross the street when she was struck by the right-front corner of the vehicle, which was attempting to complete a left turn.
The report also said a broken piece of the vehicle was recovered at the scene and kept as evidence.
The name and address of both the victim and the vehicle's registered owner are blacked out on the report. Also blacked out is a witness statement obtained by police at the scene.
DeGeorge said the information was blacked out because the accident is still under investigation.
