Chet Hanks—aka Chet Haze—may not be getting a new car from mom and dad anytime soon.
More than a year after Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson's son allegedly rear-ended a driver on a major Southern California freeway, his parents are facing a lawsuit that could hold them financially responsible.
In court documents obtained by E! News, plaintiff Terry Moogan alleges that Chet was "driving his vehicle in an unreasonable and unsafe manner and was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol" at the time of the collision.
Because Tom and Rita are the parents and the owners of the vehicle Chet was driving, Terry and his legal team argue that they are responsible for the physical and emotional injuries sustained as a result of the crash.
"Despite knowing that Chester Hanks was careless and reckless driver and a habitual user of drugs and alcohol, they negligently permitted Chester Hanks to operate their vehicle," the plaintiff alleged.
