The Driver Responsible For Death Of Jim Ross' Wife Dismissed

Jan Ross - wife of legendary WWE commentator Jim Ross - died in a tragic vehicular accident last March at the age of 55. She was hit by a 17-year-old driver while riding on her Moped, and suffered severe brain and other head injuries that took her life.

J.R. took to Twitter and announced that the driver responsible for Jan's death will not face any charges:

Because the driver is a 17-year-old juvenile, his name cannot be released to the public. Few details on the accident were also revealed. What we do know is Jan was hit from behind - as both vehicles came to a stop. Both the driver's vehicle and Jan's moped caught fire as well.

Jim and Jan married in 1993, meeting through Ric 'The Nature Boy' Flair. Good ol' J.R. had two kids from previous marriages. Not long after her death, Ross returned to the WWE and was on the announce table for the Roman Reigns and Undertaker match at WrestleMania 34.

J.R. has not appeared on WWE programming since, but he's set to return at the Raw 25th Anniversary Show alongside old friend, Jerry 'The King' Lawler. They are among the many notable wrestling names and legends who'll be present to celebrate the milestone.

A return to the WWE will be nice for Ross, as he'll receive more love and recognition from the wrestling world. It's obviously a horrible time for him and his family, who came out devastated from a questionable justice system in the United Stated.

J.R. has remained active with his blog and The Ross Report podcast. He signed a two-year contract with the WWE last year, so we can hope to see more appearances from the legendary voice of wrestling soon.
