Gwyneth Paltrow is sued for $3.1M for leaving ski crash victim

A Utah doctor has filed a lawsuit accusing Gwyneth Paltrow of seriously injuring him in a ‘hit-and-run’ crash at a swank Park City ski resort in 2016, and is demanding damages in excess of $3.1 million.

Sanderson says in the complaint that neither Paltrow or the instructor alerted ski patrol after abandoning him, and he was left stranded and alone with brain damage and four broken ribs on the side of the mountain. 

Reps for Paltrow dismissed the filing as being ‘without merit’ and said their client expects to be ‘vindicated’ in the case. 

Her lawyers meanwhile have stated that Paltrow was downhill at the time of the crash, meaning that she had the right of way. 

A Utah doctor has filed a lawsuit accusing Gwyneth Paltrow of seriously injuring him in a ‘hit-and-run’ crash at a swank Park City ski resort in 2016, and is demanding damages in excess of $3.1 million.

Optometrist Terry Sanderson, 72, says in a complaint that was filed on Tuesday that Paltrow was skiing with an instructor at Deer Valley when she lost control and slammed into him from behind.

‘I heard this hysterical scream and instantaneous I got hit in the back,’ said Sanderson at a press conference on Tuesday. 

Paltrow then proceeded to get up and ski away according to the legal filing, without checking on Sanderson or offering any assistance to the injured man.

Soon after the GOOP guru fled the scene, Sanderson claims that her instructor came over and informed the injured man that the incident was his fault and then also skied off.
