Ryan Dunn’s Estate Sued By Parents Of The Passenger Killed Alongside Him In Drunk Driving Crash
The parents of the passenger killed when Ryan Dunn drove off the road in a drunk driving accident last year are suing the dead actor’s estate for damages. The Jackass star crashed his Porsche in June 2011 after a night of heavy drinking at a bar in Pennsylvania, killing himself and his passenger Zachary Hartwell.
Hartwell’s parents, George and Erma Hartwell, yesterday filed a suit against Dunn’s estate.
They are also seeking damages from the bar, claiming Barnaby’s West Chester was negligent for continuing to serve Dunn after he was drunk.
TMZ broke the story today, revealing Zach’s parents are suing for unspecified damages.
The Hartwells claim they have 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.
Zach’s parents are also suing on behalf of their son’s estate, claiming Dunn and the bar should pay for the ‘pre-impact fright, fear, pain and suffering’ that Zach experienced before he died.
Zach’s parents also want both parties to pay for the wages Zach would have earned during his lifetime.
