Kanye West told the world his side of the story
of how his life was almost taken in a 2002 car accident in his Top Five single
"Through The Wire."
Now the man that West collided with, Miguel Villasana,
is speaking out and suing the rapper for hospital bills.
Villasana, who supervises a crew of janitors
at a Los Angeles high rise, was left with a totaled car, two broken legs, a
broken pelvis, broken knees, a shattered ankle and was out of work for over
In West's initial police report on the night
of the accident, West is quoted as telling police that he was sober, but fell
asleep at the wheel.
Two months later, West wrote the police and said
that Villasana cut him off, causing the bone breaking accident.
Villasana's lawyer believes that West was responsible
for the accident and said that West never bothered to contact his client. He
said that the rapper "just didn't care."
If the case goes to court, Villasana's lawyer
may use West's lyrics in the song as evidence.
West could not be reached for comment at press
