Aug 16, 2007, 01:00 ET from Romanucci & Blandin, LLC

    CHICAGO, Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Stephan Blandin, a principal in the
 law firm of Romanucci & Blandin, LLC, based here, today filed a lawsuit in
 the circuit court of DeKalb County (Hessler v. Busca, et al., case number
 07 L 62) against the NAPA company on behalf of a man who was injured when a
 monster truck performing stunts in DeKalb, Ill., on August 9 plowed into a
 crowd of spectators. A total of nine people were injured.
     Gregory Hessler, 45, of Aurora, a general manager for a local business
 located near the street where the truck was performing, was a bystander
 when the truck lost control as it was attempting to drive over and crush
 four cars. After plowing through the crowd, the truck went through a fence
 and stopped on railroad tracks.
     Hessler was treated in the emergency room of a DeKalb Hospital for
 injuries sustained to his leg. He is still undergoing medical treatment and
 has not returned to work.
     "We believe this accident will show a willful and wonton neglect by the
 NAPA dealership, its parent company, the driver of the truck and his
 company," said Blandin.
