Espagne: il poursuit la famille de sa victime pour réparer son Audi: ""

Tomas Delgado Bartolomé was going 160 km/h on a road where the limit was 90. He hit and killed a seventeen year old cyclist. The parents of the victim received 33,000 euros as compensation. Now, the driver is seeking compensation as well:

"I'm also a victim", he says. "We can't fix what happened to the boy, but mine we can". He is asking for 14,000 euros for damages to his car, an Audi A8 and another 6,000 euros to pay for the rental of a replacement car while his was being repaired.
