Gwyneth Paltrow denies causing ski crash

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has said a skier who accused her in a lawsuit of seriously injuring him at a resort was actually the one who ploughed into her from behind.

Paltrow’s lawyer alleges in a counter claim filed in court that the actress suffered a full “body blow” when Terry Sanderson smashed into her on a beginner run at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah, on February 26 2016.

The actress said she was shaken and stopped skiing with her family for the day.

Her account differs greatly from Mr Sanderson’s.

He alleged in the lawsuit filed on January 29 that Paltrow was skiing out of control and crashed into him.

Mr Sanderson said in his lawsuit that he was knocked out and suffered a brain injury and four broken ribs.
