Chilean soap star Cristian De La Fuente has been accused of running over a man at a car dealership in California.
According to the lawsuit, which is due to be filed at Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday, De La Fuente parked his car in the service department, but after blocking other customers, was asked to move it.
The lawsuit claims De La Fuente “in a huff, jumped in his Audi and without looking, hastily put his vehicle into reverse and accelerated into the Plaintiff.”
Kazuo Kimura claims he was “knocked to the ground and sustained serious injuries for which surgical intervention has been recommended.”
The suit claims de la Fuente “showed no remorse” and “blamed the plaintiff for standing behind his vehicle and then refused to provide his license and insurance information”, reports TMZ.com.
A spokesman for De La Fuente was unavailable.
