Woman Sues Buffalo Bills Player Marshawn Lynch After Hit-And-Run

In Buffalo, New York, an injured woman is suing after she was struck by a vehicle driven by Buffalo Bills NFL football player Marshawn Lynch in May of last year. Kimberly Shpeley was crossing the street in downtown Buffalo when Lynch struck her with his Porsche and then left the scene of the accident while driving under the influence.

Lynch reached a plea deal with prosecutors that allowed the athlete to avoid jail time for the pedestrian accident, but now he is facing a lawsuit involving Shpeley's personal injuries. The New York personal injury lawsuit filed with the Erie County Supreme Court, though no specified amount for damages was listed. For the initial accident, Lynch paid a $100 fine for not taking due care toward a pedestrian.

It is unclear what injuries Shpeley suffered from, though she is no longer in the hospital and can walk.
