Two sources involved in the investigation tell 2 On Your Side that a witness has placed Bills Running Back Marshawn Lynch behind the wheel of his S.U.V. at the time of a hit-and-run accident early Saturday morning.

A source, who asked not to be identified, tells Channel 2 that investigators have four witnesses that say Lynch was driving.

Erie County District Attorney Frank Clark would not confirm that information, but did say that investigators continue to follow a number of leads as they build their case. He also says those involved in the probe are looking into the possibility other Bills players were inside the vehicle involved in the hit and run.

2 On Your Side's Adam Benigni spoke to Lynch's attorney Michael Caffery Thursday. He wouldn't comment when asked if Lynch was driving the car, but, did say progress is being made toward a sit down meeting between Lynch and investigators.

District Attorney Frank Clark tells 2 On Your Side they now have evidence that Marshawn Lynch was on Chippewa Street the same night as the hit and run accident occured.

The Buffalo Police Department says they've contacted Marshawn Lynch's attorney about the investigation into a hit-and-run accident involving a Porsche SUV registered to the Buffalo Bills running back. Spokesperson Mike DeGeorge says investigators want answers. "It's safe to say the ball is in their court, and the clock is ticking," said DeGeorge.

Read Police Report

The SUV remains in the custody of the Buffalo Police as part of the investigation. "The car is not going anywhere," says DeGeorge.

The accident happened at 3:30am at the corner of Chippewa and Delaware in Buffalo.

According to the police report, the SUV was driving westbound on Chippewa and turning left to go south on Delaware when it hit a female pedestrian who was attempting to cross the street. Police confirm there was front end damage to the car, and the report says a broken off piece of the car was recovered at the scene and turned in as evidence.

Police say their security cameras at that intersection were operational at the time. But the spokesman said if the accident was caught on video, it would not yet be released because it would be part of an ongoing investigation.

Several staff members of a nearby bar tell us they saw a woman lying in the street for approximately 15 minutes, but they say the woman eventually got up under her own power and walked to an awaiting ambulance.

The female pedestrian who was struck has been treated and released from Buffalo General Hospital.

The Bills issued a a brief statement Monday:

"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...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."

A source tells 2-On-Your-Side the vehicle was recovered by Buffalo police from Lynch's home.

His agent did not return 2 On Your Side's calls.

Lynch was the Bills 2007 First Round Draft pick out of California.

He's been taking part in voluntary workouts at One Bills Drive and is expected to be there when practices resume Tuesday.

I blame execution.
