Default Rampage Jackson Accused of Killing a Fetus

Posted Jun 25th 2009 9:40AM by TMZ Staff

The pregnant woman caught in the wake of "Rampage" Jackson's crazy monster truck chase last year claims the UFC star caused "the stillbirth of her baby" when he rammed into her car.


Holli Griggs filed a lawsuit against Rampage in Orange County, California -- claiming he repeatedly rammed into her car "so he could escape and flee the scene (hit and run)." Griggs says "the impact of her abdomen with the steering wheel caused her amniotic fluid membranes (bag of waters) to rupture, ultimately resulting in the stillbirth of her baby."

FYI -- Rampage was never charged in relation to the death after an investigation revealed that the miscarriage was unrelated to the accident.

Griggs filed the suit anyway, claiming Rampage owes her more than $25k for property damage, personal injury and emotional distress

Yeah... it's so crazy that a person would sue a rich celebrity when they smash into their car while running from the cops....

No, but if you called me a poopy head and then started ramming my car with your F-250 I could...

if its true that he was ramming her repeatedly, there may be somewhat of an argument...but back when this all happened, i just remember seeing it as, he hit her once and that was it
