Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian West is being sued for a car crash that took place in 2014.

Rafael Linares is seeking unspecified damages from the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star after filing a lawsuit at the Los Angeles Superior Court following an incident on Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, when his vehicle collided with Kim's Mercedes.

According to Gossip Cop, Rafael is claiming "loss of income", past and future medical expenses, and cost of car repairs in his court documents. The papers reportedly say that he ''sustained personal injuries which caused and will continue to cause pain, discomfort, and physical disability'' to him. The website also reports Rafael claims he was "gainfully employed" before the smash and has since been "deprived of earnings".

Sources close to the reality TV star told gossip website TMZ that the vehicle damage was "minimal" and Kim thought Rafael was OK.

At the time of the March 2014 incident the pair were thought to have exchanged details at the nearby Beverly Hills Hotel and even shared a hug.  Despite the damage to both vehicles, neither Kim nor Rafael were ticketed at the time.

Kim was turning left at an intersection in her Mercedes G Wagon when the collision occurred.

See what happens after the accident.
