Jim Ross

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross revealed on Twitter on Thursday afternoon that the vehicular homicide charge against the 17-year-old involved in the death of his wife Jan was dismissed by a judge in Norman, Oklahoma this week.

Ross’ wife Jan was struck by a car last March while driving a Vespa scooter and died two days later in the hospital as a result of the accident. She was only 55 years old.

Ross added the driver, Nathan Ferrell, was still allowed to keep his drivers license and that the state of Oklahoma did not immediately object to the ruling.

JR will be calling this Monday’s RAW 25th Anniversary show with Jerry “The King” Lawler during the portions of the show airing from the Manhattan Center.

  1. He’s texting and driving and runs over someone and kills them. And the judge says, oh, never mind, case dismissed? WHAT???

  2. i agree that this wasn’t a vehicular homicide because the kid didnt have intent to kill jr’s wife with his vehicle. it should have been classified as vehicular manslaughter instead and for that, he should have gotten at least 5 years in jail for.

  3. The sad truth is that if she was in a car, the accident would have been a fender bender. It was her choice to drive a vespa. Why should her bad choice in vehicles be anyone’s responsibility but her owns? Accidents happen all the time. That’s the risk we all take when we enter a vehicle. If you’re comfortable knowing you can die in a minor accident then by all means buy a motorcycle. Just make sure you’re an organ donor.
