Ryan Dunn of MTV‘s Jackass was tragically killed over a year ago in a car crash as Dunn was traveling at 130 MPH, and later was proven very drunk at the time. The Ryan Dunn crash also claimed the life of his passenger at the time, Zachary Hartwell, and now, Hartwell’s parents are suing Dunn’s estate!
Nothing like waiting a year to decide that you want to sue, but that’s exactly what Zachary Hartwell’s parents have decided to do. The Hartwells are now suing the estate of Ryan Dunn, as well as the bar that Dunn was drinking at, claiming that the drunken Jackass star took the life of their son. In the lawsuit, the Hartwells claim that Ryan Dunn was extremely negligent by trying to operate his vehicle when he was clearly intoxicated. Sure, we agree, but we still can’t understand why it took them a year to figure this out.
According to TMZ, the Hartwells claim: “they’ve lost the services, guidance, and comfort of their son. And they want Dunn’s estate to cover expenses associated with Zach’s death, including funeral costs.” The parents, who are suing on behalf of their son Zachary’s estate, feel that both Ryan Dunn’s estate and the bar should pay for all of their son’s “pre-impact fright, fear, pain and suffering.” Rumor also has it that they are asking both parties to pay for all of the wages that Zachary would have earned during his life.
Wow, that seems like a bit much, no? I mean, we understand that they are hurting, but on the flip side, who forced Zachary Hartwell to get in the car with Ryan Dunn? Clearly, he either knew that Dunn was drunk, or was too drunk himself to care.
What do you think of Zachary Hartwell’s parents suing Ryan Dunn’s estate more than a year after the fatal car crash? Sound off by commenting below!
