National Car Rental Canada Sued in Wrongful Death

Former NHL player Rob Ramage and the company that rented him the vehicle used in a fatal collision could soon both face significant financial penalties in a civil trial in St. Louis, according to the Canwest News Service.

Ramage and National Car Rental (Canada) Ltd. are both defendants in a wrongful death lawsuit filed in 2004 by the family of former Chicago Blackhawk’s defenseman Keith Magnuson.

Ramage, 48, was convicted by an Ontario Superior Court jury this week of five charges, including impaired driving causing death as a result of the Dec. 15, 2003 accident just north of Toronto.

Magnuson, 56, was killed instantly when the rented Chrysler Intrepid driven by Ramage clipped one car and then collided with an SUV.
