Sean Ludwick is locked up, and his money might soon be too.

The family of deceased Douglas Elliman broker Paul Hansen will ask a judge to freeze Ludwick’s assets – worth roughly $20 million – as part of a wrongful death case they’ve brought against the BlackHouse Development founder.

Hansen died last August when Ludwick allegedly crashed the car they were driving in into a utility pole in Sag Harbor. Ludwick allegedly pulled Hansen’s body from the car and drove off.

The family is seeking damages of up to $10 million in damages in the civil case, the New York Post reported.

The developer in all faces 13 criminal counts over the crash. He was arrested last week in Puerto Rico after allegedly arranging to buy a boat – with the apparent aim of fleeing to South America – from an off-duty FBI agent. A judge ordered him jailed and revoked his $1 million bail.

Earlier this week, he parted ways with his celebrity attorney, Benjamin Brafman. [NYP]Ariel Stulberg
