Maybe Don’t Go Here For Anything

The last thing you’d expect when you bring your car to a shop to get an oil change is to be served with a lawsuit. But that’s what happened to a car owner who dropped his car off at the Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealership in Michigan. An 18-year-old mechanic got in the car and drove over his 42-year-old boss, Jeffrey Hawkins, killing him. 

Very sad, but here’s where the story gets weird. Hawkins’ family is suing the owner of the car for damages. The attorney for the family explained that it is not possible for them to sue the dealership, so they are going after the car owner instead, even though the owner had nothing to do with Hawkins’ death.

A sibling bought a car from this dealership. This story tracks with that experience. YMMV
