Life Gerard Butler sued the motorist who knocked him down in 2017 By weekster Posted on 2 weeks ago 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Two years after his motorcycle accident, Hollywood actor Gerard Butler (49) sues the motorist who cut him off at the time. This appears from court documents that TMZ has managed to lay hands on. “I could have ended up very differently” The court papers show that Butler was thrown off his motorcycle when a woman drove her vehicle off the curb and crossed a few lanes until she drove right in front of Butler. The Angel Has Fallen actor claims that he no longer had time to brake. He then bumped into the driver’s side car and flew off his engine. Bystanders called the emergency number 911 and an ambulance took him to the nearest hospital in Los Angeles. “I could have ended up in a completely different way, so I might not have survived,” the actor said earlier about the accident. He sustained a broken foot, multiple bruises and cuts, but nevertheless appeared on the red carpet of the Geostorm movie a week later.
