Road Rage Death Litigation Continues

     LAS VEGAS (CN) – The estate of the cab driver killed in a February shooting on the Las Vegas Strip sued the other man who died, claiming he escalated the “road rage incident.”
     Michael A. Boldon’s family sued the estate of Kenneth Cherry Jr. in Clark County District Court.
     Cherry was “chasing and catching a vehicle being driven by Ammar Harris,” who was accused of shooting Cherry to death from his Range Rover, the Boldons say in the complaint. “As the subject car chase proceeded through a red light at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Boulevard, a collision occurred between [Cherry] and the vehicle being driven” by Boldon.
     The Boldons claim Cherry “fail(ed) to drive in a manner reasonable and safe under the conditions as they existed.” The accuse Cherry of “escalating a dispute which evolved into a road rage incident and a vehicle chase with the Harris vehicle, with the Cherry vehicle thereafter striking the side of the vehicle containing Michael Boldon.”
     Also killed in the crash was Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, who was Boldon’s passenger.
     Boldon’s son Michael sued Harris, the alleged gunman, in Clark County Court in March.
     Harris was arrested on Feb. 28 in Southern California after a multistate manhunt.
     He is accused of shooting from his Range Rover into Cherry’s Maserati, killing him. Police say the Maserati then crashed into Bolden’s taxi and exploded, killing him and his passenger.
     Boldon’s family seeks at least $20,000 in special damages.
     They are represented by Lawrence J. Smith with Benson, Bertoldo, Baker & Carter.
