Sources close to the comedian tell TMZ … Kevin does not intend to sue driver Jared Black, whom the CHP determined caused the crash by driving recklessly. In fact, we’re told Kevin’s not even going to file a claim with Jared’s insurance company to cover his medical bills and the cost of the 1970 Plymouth Baraccuda, which was totaled in the single-car crash.
sources say Kevin likes Jared and Jared’s fiancee is close to Kevin’s wife, Eniko. The fiancee, Rebecca, is Eniko’s personal trainer.
We’re told Kevin will use his personal health insurance to cover medical costs. It’s not like he needs the money. It’s unclear whether he’s just going to write off the value of the car.
The medical bills are going to be huge. Kevin had surgery for 3 fractures on his back and is undergoing intensive therapy. All of that put the medical bills over the top.
Here’s the crazy part… TMZ we’re told that Jared himself has lawyered up, and could file suit against Kevin for not having the proper safety harnesses in the car. If he does sue, there’s a problem, because no one in the car was even wearing their safety belt. So, even if there were harnesses, it wouldn’t have done anyone any good if no one strapped in.
