Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow is being sued after an alleged crash at a Utah ski resort.
The 46-year-old star has been accused of seriously injuring Terry Sanderson after skiing into him on 26 February 2016, according to a lawsuit filed in the Utah state court.
Mr Sanderson, a retired doctor, is seeking $3.1m (£2.37m) in damages but says he is not motivated by Paltrow’s fame.
He said he had suffered concussion and four broken ribs after Paltrow knocked into him from behind.
He said the actress, who starred in Sliding Doors and Shakespeare In Love, had been skiing out of control when she hit him and left him injured without sending any help.
Mr Sanderson, 72, said it had been unkind of her not to stay with him after the accident or even apologise.
“I would like to be vindicated, I would like my truth to be told,” he told reporters.
Due to his concussion, he remembers nothing about the incident after being struck in the back and thrust forward.
His case is based on the memory of Craig Ramon, an acquaintance who was skiing with him.
Mr Ramon said that after the collision, Mr Sanderson lay unconscious face down in the snow as an instructor at the resort told him off.
The resort – Deer Valley Resort in Park City, is also being sued.
Mr Sanderson said an instructor there filed a false report saying Paltrow was not at fault in the collision.
Resort spokeswoman Emily Summers said she could not comment on pending legal matters.
Heather Wilson, a spokeswoman for Paltrow, said the lawsuit was “without merit”.
She added that the actress expected to be “vindicated.”
It is reported that the lawyers agree the collision happened but disagree over whether Paltrow was to blame.
