Josh Klinghoffer sued for wrongful death following an incident where he allegedly struck a pedestrian with his vehicle

Josh Klinghoffer, the guitarist formerly of Pearl Jam and previously of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane’s Addiction, is facing a lawsuit for wrongful death following a tragic traffic collision. The lawsuit, filed by the family of Israel Sanchez, alleges that Klinghoffer, 44, struck and killed Sanchez, 47, as he crossed a street in Alhambra, California, on March 18. Sanchez suffered fatal blunt-force head trauma and passed away later that day.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Klinghoffer’s attorney, Andrew Brettler, described the incident as a “tragic accident.” Brettler stated that Klinghoffer immediately stopped his car after the collision, called emergency services, and cooperated with the authorities during their investigation.

However, prosecutors claim that Klinghoffer was using a smartphone while driving and allege that he struck Sanchez from behind in a crosswalk. Nick Rowley, representing the prosecution, asserted that Klinghoffer should be charged with homicide based on evidence, including video footage allegedly showing him using his phone at the time of the incident.

Ashley Sanchez, speaking through Entertainment Weekly, described her father as a beloved figure known for his culinary skills and warm personality. She emphasized the devastating impact of his loss on their family. Klinghoffer, currently on tour with Pearl Jam, is navigating legal proceedings while the case unfolds.
