Halle Berry Settles Car Suit


HALLE BERRY has settled her suit with a woman she had a car crash with last year (FEB00). HETAL RAYTHATHA sued the beautiful actress for negligence but has agreed to settle the case out of court, lawyers said. Berry was sued after their cars collided - the lawsuit claimed Berry, who left the accident scene, was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Last year (00) the actress pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge of leaving the scene and was ordered to pay $13,500 (9000) in fines and to serve 200 hours of community service. (MB/WNWC/RP)
