Gwyneth Paltrow denies causing crash that injured man at Utah ski resort

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow denied that she seriously injured a man at a Utah ski resort after skiing into him, alleging in a countersuit that the man actually rammed into her from behind delivering a full "body blow" in the process.

Sanderson first filed the suit against Paltrow in January, alleging that she had been skiing "out of control" on February 26, 2016, when she ran into him and left him alone to tend to his injuries, and wanted at least $3.1 million in damages. "She was enjoying skiing with her family on vacation in Utah, when Plaintiff - who was uphill from Ms. Paltrow - plowed into her back".

"She did not knock him down", Paltrow's court filing said.

Having denied responsibility for the crash, Paltrow claims in her countersuit that Sanderson apologised to her and said he was fine. "He was not knocked out".

The account differs greatly from the sequence of events alleged by Sanderson in the lawsuit filed last month. He claims that Paltrow "skied out of control", knocking him down, causing him serious injuries, including "a brain injury, four broken ribs and other serious injuries".

Sanderson announced his lawsuit against Paltrow at a news conference last month in Salt Lake City, saying that he was skiing on a novice slope when he heard a "hysterical scream" from behind before he was struck between the shoulder blades by the actress.

The Goop founder also alleged that Sanderson's friend said that he acted the same after the incident as he did before the crash.

Now Paltrow is seeking "only symbolic damages in the amount of $1" in addition to her attorneys' fees.

"The statement made by Ms. Paltrow that Dr. Sanderson hit her from behind is false", Bob Sykes, a Salt Lake City-based attorney for the optometrist, told Reuters in a written statement on Wednesday.

A representative for Deer Valley told CNN they "will not comment on any pending legal matters of the resort or our guests".

Paltrow is known for her roles in Shakespeare in Love and the Iron Man movies.
