Nick Viall may want to think twice before getting behind the wheel with his potential future wife! RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal The Bachelor contestant Rachel Lindsay was sued for allegedly causing a car wreck.
In court papers obtained from the Dallas County District Court, the victim in the crash accused Lindsay of "negligently failing to control her vehicle, thereby causing a collision between hers and a car driven by the plaintiff."
"On June 14, 2013, while traveling south bound on highway US-75, in Dallas County, plaintiff’s vehicle was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by defendant Lindsay," the plaintiff’s original petition read. "Defendant Lindsay negligently failed to control the speed of or stop her car. Defendant’s negligence caused damage to the car being driven by the plaintiff and to plaintiff's person."
The plaintiff requested damages for medical care and expenses, physical pain, suffering in the future, physical impairment in the past, loss of earnings in the past, and mental anguish.
Lindsay denied the accusations made against her by the plaintiff.
The parties settled with State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company agreeing to pay the plaintiff $12,500. In return, the lawsuit against Lindsay was dismissed with prejudice.
Viall, who is a two-time Bachelorette runner-up, returned home from filming the reality dating show on November 23.
The new season premieres Monday, January 2 at 8/7c on ABC.
