New Kids on the Block’s Joey McIntyre Hit with Car Crash Lawsuit

By Scott T. Sterling

The way one California family tells it, New Kids on the Block star Joey McIntyre should spend more time walking “Step by Step” and less behind the wheel of a car.

The Patel family has filed a lawsuit against McIntyre for an alleged car crash that occurred in the city of Burbank two years ago, which according to the suit left family members injured.

“Defendant(s) so negligently, carelessly, recklessly and unlawfully drove, operated, entrusted, owned, and maintained their vehicle so as to cause it to collide with plaintiffs’ vehicle, thereby causing personal injuries and damages to plaintiffs,” claims the lawsuit (via The Wrap).

“As a result of defendants’ negligence, plaintiffs were required to undergo medical treatment, incurring medical expenses, suffering lost earnings, lost earning potential, property damage, loss of use, and suffering.”

The Patels are seeking $25,000 in damages.

McIntyre, who is currently starring on upcoming CBS sitcom The McCarthys, has yet to comment on the charges.

The 41-year-old made his name as part of the boy band, and has continued with them even into their recent reunion.
