Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow went on trial in a US civil court on Tuesday, where she is accused of causing serious injury to a retired optometrist in a collision on a Utah ski slope in 2016.

Terry Sanderson, 76, claims Paltrow crashed into him at the upmarket Deer Valley resort in Park City, Utah several years ago, after which she and her entourage abandoned him as they continued down the mountain.

“Gwyneth Paltrow skied out of control,” Sanderson’s attorneys claim in the lawsuit. They are seeking $300,000 in damages for “knocking him down hard, knocking him out, and causing a brain injury, four broken ribs and other serious injuries.”

The lawsuit alleges that Paltrow, famous for roles in films like ‘Shakespeare In Love’, ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ and the Iron Man series, “got up, turned and skied away, leaving Sanderson stunned, lying in the snow, seriously injured.” (RT)
