Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was cited for negligent driving by the Lincoln Police Department after a Sunday morning car accident that totaled one car and severely damaged three others.

The accident occurred at 2:20 a.m. between 30th and 31st and U Streets.

NU head coach Bo Pelini said in a statement he was aware of the accident, and had already talked to Suh about it.

According to the LPD's accident report, Suh said he was driving his 2003 green Landrover when he tried to avoid a "small dog or cat" in the road, took "evasive maneuvers" to avoid it, and struck one parked car, swerved, and struck two more parked cars on the other side of the road.

Two of the vehicles had damage estimated at $8,000. Another car was totaled. Suh's SUV sustained $10,000 worth of damage.

Alcohol was initially suspected, but Suh's blood-alcohol content was .035, well below the legal limit.

Nebraska beat Baylor 20-10 Saturday afternoon in Waco. Suh declined to speak to reporters after the game.
