Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch is coming off the worst season of his NFL career.
And now his off-season is getting off to a bad start: Lynch is being sued by the woman who was hit by his SUV while crossing the street in 2008.
According to Courthouse News Service, the lawsuit alleges that Lynch “operated his motor vehicle in such a reckless, careless and negligent manner, while in an intoxicated state, so as to lose control … causing the [vehicle] to strike the pedestrian plaintiff.”
The 27-year-old woman says she sustained “severe, painful and permanent injuries.”
Lynch, who left the scene of the accident, pleaded guilty to failure to exercise due care toward a pedestrian, paid a $100 fine and had his driver’s license revoked.
