Three Bills players, official subpoenaed in Lynch hit-and-run case

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Three Buffalo Bills players and a high-ranking team official have been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury looking into a hit-and-run accident involving running back Marshawn Lynch's SUV, police said Thursday.

"Investigators believe these people have information regarding this case," said Buffalo Police Department spokesman Michael DeGeorge.

Erie County District Attorney Frank Clark has empaneled a grand jury to investigate the May 31 incident when Lynch's 2008 Porsche Cayenne allegedly sped off after hitting and injuring a female pedestrian.

The grand jury is scheduled to convene on June 20, DeGeorge said.

Clark -- who was unavailable for comment Thursday -- has previously said he's confident charges will be filed in the case.

DeGeorge didn't name those who were subpoenaed Thursday.

DeGeorge did rule out the possibility that other high-ranking Bills officials could be subpoenaed.
