Relative of skier suing Gwyneth Paltrow over collision on slopes claims it was like 'a hit and run' | The Sun

A RELATIVE of the skier suing Gwyneth Paltrow over a collision on the slopes has told a court it was like “a hit and run”.

But Mark Herath was ticked off by a judge who said his remark would be struck from the record.

Mr Herath was giving evidence on behalf of Terry Sanderson, 76, who alleges the film star left him with brain injuries by crashing into him.

 He said: “She and whoever was with her left the scene of the accident, that’s what surprised me.

“It’s like a hit and run. It’s a serious offence.”

After a discussion with both side’s lawyers, Judge Kent Holmberg told the jury: “There’s no claim based on a so-called hit and run and the witness should refrain from using that terminology.

“The term is stricken from the record and the jury should ignore the witness’s use of that term.”

Before the trial the judge lowered the claim from £2.5m to £245,000 and ruled that the accident was not a hit and run crash.

Ms Paltrow, 50, denies liability and is counter-suing, saying the retired eye specialist caused the accident.

The case in Utah, US, continues.
