Reeves hit with negligence lawsuit


A photographer has filed a lawsuit against Keanu Reeves after the actor allegedly crashed into him in a Porsche.

According to the lawsuit, filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Reeves struck Alison Silva on March 19. Authorities said at the time of the accident that the person Reeves struck was a male paparazzi.

The suit seeks an unspecified amount of damages and alleges that Silva suffered shock and serious bodily injuries in the collision.

An attorney for Reeves did not return a phone message Monday evening.

According to reports at the time of the accident, Reeves was leaving a parking space in the Avenida Tranquila residential area near Los Verdes County Golf Course about 30 miles south of downtown Los Angeles when he hit Silva.

An attorney for Reeves said at the time that Silva was blocking Reeves' way and if there was a collision, it was not hard enough to injure the photographer.
