Halle Berry, who is under suspicion for a hit-and-run car accident last month in Los Angeles, is now being sued by the other driver. Hetal Raythatha, who claims she is permanently disabled from back injuries and is suffering emotional distress, says in her lawsuit that the actress was negligent and possibly drunk when she allegedly ran a red light and smacked into Raythatha's car before speeding off in the early morning hours of Feb. 23. A spokesman for Berry, 31, told the Associated Press that the actress "intends to do what she can to make things right. But that doesn't mean she will allow anyone to take advantage of an unfortunate situation or make slanderous insinuations." Regarding the accusation of Berry being drunk, the rep pointed out, "The police have confirmed, there is absolutely no evidence indicating that drugs or alcohol played any part in the accident."
