'Bachelor' Contestant: You Ran Me Over with a Jeep!!!

7/22/2011 5:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A former Bachelor contestant who is now a producer for Ryan Seacrest is suing a guy who allegedly ran over her foot in a Mercedes, and she says the accident is ruining her life.

Sarah Schnare claims last April she was standing next to a car driven by Sam Magid -- a guy who invests in projects involving comic books that are turned into movies.  According to the lawsuit, Sarah was standing at the passenger window of Sam's Mercedes jeep when the vehicle moved, knocking her to the ground. 

But it gets worse.  Sarah claims when she was on the ground, the jeep ran over her right foot, breaking 6 bones.

Sarah tells TMZ ... she hasn't been able to work on Ryan's radio show since April.  Her employer is not Ryan, it's Clear Channel, and the company put her on unpaid leave.

Sarah -- who worked on "Larry King Live" before moving on to Ryan -- says Sam's insurance company refuses to front her any money for the multiple surgeries, lost wages and other expenses she's had to incur as a result of the injuries.

We could not reach Sam for comment.

Question....why can't she work on a radio show? Don't they sit down and talk into a mic? Hmmmmm sounds fishy. I don't know why her foot being broken would prevent her from sitting and talking.

Of course he will deny it, but I blame Chris Brown for running her over with the jeep.

@jpierce26 Maybe she is unable to drive after this unfortunate accident. The main question is why haven't they paid her and if he truly even had insurance.

Hey Lonnie - Mercedes makes a Jeep - duh! Her foot looks so bad - I feel so sorry for her. Doesn't she have insurance from her job? She needs a GOOD attorney. Hey Harvey? Help the poor girl!

I understand it is painful, stressful, etc - but anyone over the age of 5 who balls their fists into their eyes while crying needs to grow up.

Wow Looks Painful. This kind of injury can give you problems off and on for years. This case would be hard to prove. Maybe she put her foot in the way of the jeep.

Kingborg: No, it's either a Mercedes or it's a Jeep. Not both.

Jeep is a a model name. Not a design name. You can't call it a Jeep unless Chrysler made it.

Daimler who makes Mercedes-Benz and Chrysler who makes the Jeep are not longer married. They are separate entities now.

Did her foot look like a hand before it was run over? I think this is relevant to her claim

Bawling her eyes out to the camera is a nice touch. Maybe it will help.
