Jan Ross Details

As reported last week, Jim Ross’ wife Jan was involved in a serious traffic accident whilst riding her scooter, suffering a catastrophic brain injury which sadly caused her to pass away.

Whilst discussing Jim Ross making his Orlando obligations, Dave Meltzer gave more information on this story via Wrestling Observer Radio, revealing that the driver of the car who crashed into Jan was a teenager texting whilst driving.

“She was a block away from her garage and I believe she was going down a hill and the car was going down the hill. He didn’t see her and ran her over. I believe that the 17 year old boy was texting at the time this happened.”

  1. And this is why texting while driving should be banned. Truth be told it should’ve been banned a long time ago.

  2. It’s banned where I live and it hasn’t seemed to stop people in the least. I travel all over and it’s banned in many places and it also hasn’t seemed to change habits in those places. I think the only thing that may help are powerful commercials regarding the personal cost, and stiff fines and heavy charges in cases like this.

  3. In Ohio it’s treated worse than drinking and driving. But it hasn’t changed anything. But here there are just as many 30-40 year olds doing it along with teens.

  4. It’s banned here in Australia though people still do it. And it’s the thing police look for. It’s highly frowned upon here

  5. .ing idiot, he should get the max manslaughter sentence without parol and never be able to drive again.

  6. some brainless cnut of a teenager who will probably get a slap on the wrist at most. maybe if they sent the POS to prison to get ar$e-raped a few times he would learn not to TEXT – not even fkn phone, TEXT – whilst driving.

  7. I am a BIG fan of Mr. Ross. My heart goes out to him. This is unimaginable pain for him. But saying ” I believe that the 17 year old boy was texting at the time this happened” He either was or wasn’t texting. I could say I believe he was drinking.
    Is that true? We say things on the internet that instantly becomes FACT.
