BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -Police are investigating a hit-and-run accident involving a sports utility vehicle registered to the Bills' Marshawn Lynch, but didn't know whether he was in the SUV when it struck and injured a female pedestrian early Saturday.
Buffalo Police Department spokesman Mike DeGeorge said on Sunday that it's unclear whether the running back was driving or even in the SUV when the accident occurred around 3:30 a.m. Saturday at an intersection near Buffalo's downtown bar district.
Citing department policy, DeGeorge declined to say whether police have contacted Lynch, who has been taking part in a series of Bills voluntary practices over the past two weeks.
He but could not be reached for comment and a message left with his agent, Michael Sullivan, was not immediately returned.
Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold said Lynch's attorney was out of town and will address the matter when he returns. Otherwise, the team is declining comment at this time.
DeGeorge said the woman was injured but has been treated and released from a local hospital.
Lynch was Buffalo's first-round pick in the 2007 draft out of California.
