Driver kills cyclist, sues victim's family for damages
Well, not exactly. See, Delgado's car suffered €10,000 in damage, and Delgado spent another €6,000 on rental cars while his was being repaired. So in 2006 he sued Iriondo's parents for €20,000 for his expenses -- and, we guess, a little extra for pain and emotional suffering. His rationale, according to an interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais: "I'm also a victim in all of this, you can't fix the lad's problems, but you can fix mine," and "It's the only way I have to claim my money back."
We don't know if we have the words to describe such an efficiently ruthless reasoning. For Iriondo's mother, Rosa Trinidad (pictured), "Before the lawsuit we thought the poor guy would find it hard to live the rest of his life with the thought of having caused our son's death. This was the final straw, a kick in the teeth." That will have to do for now. To say the least.
Thanks for the tip, Aki!
