Goodell: NFL Won't Discipline Lynch in Hit-and-Run

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) - NFL commissioner Roger Goodell won't discipline Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch for a hit-and-run accident that left a woman injured.

Lynch lost his license last month after he pleaded guilty to a traffic violation. He was driving his 2008 Porsche Cayenne SUV about 3:30 a.m. on May 31 when he hit a 27-year-old Ontario woman and kept going.

He could have faced criminal charges but reached a plea deal with prosecutors. The woman suffered a bruised hip and a cut to her thigh that required seven stitches.

Speaking at Bills training camp, Goodell says since Lynch pleaded guilty to traffic violation, there was no violation of the league's personal conduct policy.
