US Actress Gwyneth Paltrow in Court Over Alleged Hit & Run Ski Accident


It is claimed she hit and seriously injured a man in Deer Valley Utah in 2016. She is expected to take the stand in an 8-day hearing. NEW

She is being sued in a civil trial by a retired optometrist, 76-year old Terry Sanderson.

He claims she was skiing out of control when she crashed into him leaving him with a brain injury, four broken ribs and other serious injuries.

Paltrow has counter-sued and claimed that he hit her.

Mr Sanderson, is seeking damages of $300,000 (£245,000).

He had a previous claim for $3.1m (£2.5m) dropped.

The original claim states “This case involves a hit-and-run ski crash at Deer Valley, Utah, where defendant Gwyneth Paltrow skied out of control and hit the back of Terry Sanderson, another skier, who was downhill, knocking him down hard, knocking him out, and causing a brain injury, four broken ribs and other serious injuries.

“Paltrow got up, turned and skied away, leaving Sanderson stunned, lying in the snow, seriously injured.”

It is claimed that Paltrow’s ski instructor made no attempt to help him.

It also claimed the instructor did not send for help and later accused Mr Sanderson of having caused the crash in a “false report to protect his client”.
