Former Chili Pepper Klinghoffer sued for wrongful death after ‘tragic accident’

Former Chili Pepper Klinghoffer sued for wrongful death after ‘tragic accident’

Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer is in big trouble. He is being sued for involuntary manslaughter and negligence after his car struck and killed a pedestrian earlier this year.

The incident occurred in March, when 47-year-old Israel Sanchez died after being struck while crossing the street in Alhambra, east of Los Angeles. The lawsuit was filed Wednesday by Sanchez’s daughter Ashley.
