Caroline Kennedy and her 24-year-old daughter Rose Schlossberg have reportedly settled a lawsuit involving Rose’s Chevy Impala crashing into another car earlier this year.
TMZ.com says Caroline and Rose — the daughter and granddaughter of President John F. Kennedy — were named in a suit filed by a man who claimed Rose slammed into his Honda Civic last August.
The accident reportedly occurred on fashionable Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles.
The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, claimed the victim — whom TMZ.com does not name — suffered serious physical and mental injuries due to Rose’s “negligent’’ and “careless’’ actions.
The suit asked for more than $25,000 in damages, according to the website. While Caroline Kennedy was not in the car at the time of the smash-up, she was named in the action because she is the legal owner of the car.
The victim's lawyer told TMZ a settlement was reached.
“Everybody, including the Kennedys, and their insurance company, were very caring, understanding, ethical, and honest,’’ the lawyer said. "They were first rate people, we're very satisfied."
TMZ could not immediately reach the Kennedy family for comment. A phone number for the Kennedy family business, Joseph P. Kennedy Enterprises in New York, did not appear to be working.
