Ex Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist and current Pearl Jam member of the tour Josh Klinghoffer is named in the wrongful death lawsuit, TMZ reports.

The lawsuit alleges that a 47-year-old pedestrian was killed after Klinghoffer hit him while driving in Alhambra, California, in March. TMZ obtained footage purporting to show the entire incident.

In a statement to TMZ, Klinghoffer’s lawyer called what happened a “tragic accident.”

“After Josh struck the pedestrian at the intersection, he immediately pulled over, stopped his car, called 911 and waited for police and ambulance to arrive,” the statement continued. “Of course, he is cooperating with the police throughout the traffic investigation. This was simply a tragic accident.”
