Gwyneth Paltrow is being sued for allegedly injuring a Utah man in a hit-and-run crash at Deer Valley Resort in Park City.
Terry Sanderson, a 72-year-old retired optometrist filed a lawsuit on Tuesday, according to PEOPLE. Sanderson claims that Paltrow hit him while skiing in February of 2016.
Sanderson described the incident as “a hit-and-run ski crash” where Paltrow allegedly “skied out of control” and hit him in the back. She then “got up, turned and skied away, leaving Sanderson stunned, lying in the snow, seriously injured,” according to his lawsuit.
“Gwyneth Paltrow knew it was wrong to slam into Dr. Sanderson’s back, knocking him down, landing on top of him, knocking him out and then leave the scene of the ski crash she caused, but she did it anyway,” Sanderson put in the lawsuit.
Sanderson claimed he suffered injuries from the collision including a “permanent traumatic brain injury,” four broken ribs, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and disfigurement.
“I remember feeling very sore, and my brain felt like Novocaine, I felt really numb,” Sanderson said during a press conference. “I would like to be vindicated. I would like my truth to be told.”
Sanderson is seeking $3.1 million for for “loss of enjoyment of life” and “emotional distress and disfigurement.”
“This lawsuit is completely without merit. Anyone who reads the facts will realize that,” a representative for Paltrow said.
