Jim Ross announced that Norman, Oklahoma judge Steven Stice dismissed the vehicular homicide charges against Nathan Ferrell, who drove the car that struck and killed Ross’s wife Jan on March 21, 2017. “The driver never even lost his drivers license,” Ross wrote.
Powell’s POV: Jan was driving her Vespa scooter when the car that Ferrell was driving hit her from behind. Jan, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from the scooter. She died in a hospital two days after the accident at age 55. It will be interesting to see if the judge offers an explanation for his seemingly lenient decision.
This morning norman judge Steven Stice felt compelled to dismiss vehicular homicide charge against the 17 year old in my wife Jan’s death. The state objected to no avail.
The driver never even lost his drivers license.
