Rampage hits litigious pregnant woman

Now that the havoc is over, the lawsuits can begin pouring in. While not really adding many details to the Quinton Jackson debacle, this article adds a human face to one of the people hit by Rampage’s truck:

Holli Griggs, 38, was driving her 2007 Cadillac Escalade in the left lane on the southbound 55 freeway just south of Bay Street when Jackson’s gray-and-green monster truck sideswiped her as it continued down the freeway at 45 mph, California Highway Patrol officer Jennifer Hink said. The freeway turns into Newport Boulevard just south of there and is typically clogged with traffic at about the time of the accident, 1:30 p.m.

Jackson could face felony charges of a hit and run because Griggs was taken to the hospital for minor injuries, Hink said. In an e-mail sent to the Daily Pilot, Griggs said she and her unborn baby, 16 and a half weeks along, were injured but was not sure to what extent.

Griggs said Jackson was acting “violent and reckless” and “had no regard for my life or anyone else’s for that matter.”

Authorities say Jackson also sideswiped the silver 2003 Mercedes behind Griggs in traffic. That driver was not injured, Hink said.

Call me cynical here, but one would imagine that the woman who was hit would be making sure her baby was okay rather than emailing a newspaper and talking like a lawyer if the baby was actually injured. On the other hand, if I was pregnant (and I hope I’m not, although it has been a while since my last period) and some fool hit me with a fucking monster truck, I’d make sure I took enough of his money that he’d be driving a goddamn Golf for the rest of his life.
