The Buffalo Bills issued a comment Monday afternoon on the investigation currently being conducted by Buffalo Police into an alleged hit-and-run accident involving a car registered to running back Marshawn Lynch.
“At this point in time, we want to let the process play out before we make any comments relative to the situation as we don’t know all the facts,” said Bills Vice President of Communications Scott Berchtold. “The investigation is ongoing by the Buffalo Police Department and all comments relative to Marshawn are being handled by his attorney, Michael Caffery. Anything beyond that is speculation and we will refrain from that.”
Lynch’s vehicle was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident early Saturday morning and allegedly struck a female pedestrian at West Chippewa Street and Delaware Avenue. The alleged victim has since been treated and released from Buffalo General Hospital.
