SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Actress Gwyneth Paltrow says a skier who accused her in a lawsuit of seriously injuring him at a Utah resort was actually the one who plowed into her from behind.

Paltrow's attorney alleges in a counter claim filed in court Wednesday 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 Feb. 26, 2016.

Paltrow says she was shaken and quit skiing with her family for the day.

Her account differs greatly from Sanderson's.

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

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