This is a very serious allegation.
Robert Carradine‘s wife Edith Carradine, also known as Edie Mani, claims the Revenge of the Nerds star deliberately drove head-on into a semi-truck on a Colorado highway in March 2015.
TMZ reports that in new legal documents, Edith also claims she confronted her estranged husband (he filed for divorce in 2015) four months following the accident and that he confessed to doing it on purpose in order to kill them.
“[He] confessed to me and our two children that he deliberately drove into the truck to kill us both.”
Edith further stated that Robert is “a professional race car driver” and was “wide awake” during the crash, saying:
“…so when he suddenly veered across the highway and into the full sized semi-truck, he did so on purpose.”
As to the reason for the crash, Edith says it was due to her husband’s depression, from which he’s been suffering since his brother’s death in 2009. She wants his 17 guns to be taken away, because she’s afraid he’ll try to hurt himself.
Finally, Edith has asked for money, stating that she has no job and owes more than $14K in lawyer’s fees. Apparently she wants Robert’s guitars, which are worth several thousand dollars, as a form of payment.
