two upsetting things about this

2. The Dealership has to lawyer up b/c his family will sue

Sue for what. He stole a car and crashed. His family ain't gona win anything. If anything the female passenger should sue that idiots family. Play stupid games win stupid prizes . Once the police download the data off the ECU of the Ferrari I'm sure it will go even farther in proving that guy is a moron.

too bad the dealer's insurance company will have to pay up and his rates will skyrocket, rather than collecting from the thief. Too bad they can't do like the Israeli military and destroy the family home of the thief, lol.

I bet the family will get money from the dealership. They could contend they shouldn't have let him test drive to start with or something like that.

the article isnt clear but their choice of words its sounds like he snuck the car out of the lot. Which to me makes sense because I dont see any dealership letting someone test drive a Ferrari without a sales person present. The article also says it was stolen from their inventory . Maybe hes an employee . Article is quite vague.. Article also talks about a go fund me account for cancer. Maybe disgruntled employee diagnosed with cancer. His work doesnt give a shit to help. Hes dying, so what better way to stick it to his job on his way out. Theres your civil suit lol.

I think the parents are hoping the dealership's insurance company writes a check to get them off their back.

I hate to derail the paranoia, but the family would have the worst possible wrongful death suit one could have. Colorado imposes a harsh damages cap on wrongful death cases and uses the doctrine of modified comparative fault. There would have to be an overt act of negligence on the part of the dealership that would have to significantly outweigh the many acts of contributory negligence of the decedent. Someone mentioned that the dealership may be his employer. If that hypothetical were real, then the family would be further barred by workers' compensation immunity.
