Los Angeles: Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger is facing a legal problem following his alleged reckless driving.
A few months after being involved in a four-car accident, the actor has been slapped with a new lawsuit by a woman, who claims she was left "permanently disabled" due to the car crash.
On Wednesday, November 15, Cheryl Augustine submitted the legal documents in the Los Angeles County Superior. In the court papers, which were obtained by 'The Blast' and 'Radar Online', she claimed that she was left "permanently disabled" following the accident, which took place at Sunset Boulevard and Allenford Avenue in January 2022, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Cheryl accused the actor of driving his Yukon SUV "recklessly."
She wrote, "At said time and place, defendants, and each of them, so negligently, wantonly, unlawfully, wrongfully and recklessly drove, operated, serviced, maintained, entrusted, repaired and managed said vehicle to cause the said vehicle to collide with plaintiff's vehicle and to proximately cause the hereinafter described injuries and damages to the plaintiff."
In the legal document, Cheryl also elaborated that she suffered "injury to her body and shock and injury to her nervous system and person all of which have caused and continue to cause plaintiff great physical and nervous pain suffering."
She was "required to, and did, employ physicians and surgeons to examine, treat and care for her," which needed "medical and incidental expenses, the amount of which is presently unknown" to her.
Cherly additionally explained that she "suffered out-of-pocket property damage, loss of use of her automobile, and incurred other out-of-pocket expenses in an amount not known."
She alleged that she spent more than $25,000 in damages, including "general damages... all medical and incidental expenses...all loss of earnings" since she couldn't go to work following the collision. The amount of money also included all damages to her car.
Back in January 2022, Arnold was driving the Yukon SUV when he smashed it into a red Prius. His luxury car rolled and ended up on top of the Prius.
Prior to the collision, he allegedly was turning left when the left turn arrow was still red. Though so, it was reported that he was not ticketed. At that time, he came out of the car unscathed.
