Photographer to sue actor Reeves

6 November 07 08:26 GMT

Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves is being sued by a photographer who claims the star crashed into him in a Porsche.

According to the case, which was filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, Reeves struck male paparazzo Alison Silva in March.

Mr Silva alleges he suffered shock and serious bodily injuries after the crash.

The case seeks an unspecified amount in damages. A spokesman for Reeves was unavailable for comment.

Reports claimed at the time of the accident that Reeves had been leaving a parking space.

Reeves's lawyer said at the time that Mr Silva had been blocking the actor's way and if there had been a collision, it was not hard enough to cause injuries.
