Bob Geldof facing pounds 300k crash case; COURTS.

Byline: RICHIE TAYLOR

BOB Geldof said yesterday he is shocked at reports a motorcyclist, who was badly injured in a collision with his car, is to sue him for pounds 300,000.

Andrew Quinn shattered his knee and broke his leg in two places after the collision with Geldof's Lexus on the King's Road in London in April 2007.

He has now issued a writ at the High Court in London against the Live Aid organiser.

Mr Quinn said: "The injuries I have will probably be with me for the rest of my life and I've been told I will suffer from early arthritis.

"I flew threw the air thinking, 'This is going to hurt'. And it was agony.

"I remember hitting the brakes but there was no way I could stop."

But Geldof said: "This is actually the first I've heard of it. I thought the matter had been resolved by the insurance company."
