Officer and Bar to Pay $2.25 Million In Fatal Car Crash
A police officer and the bar which served her were held accountable for a fatal car crash caused by drunk driving. They will pay a total of $2.255 million for the wrongful death of four people and the injuries to another man, reports St. Louis Today.
The lawsuit claimed the police officer had consumed a “high quantity” of alcohol at O’Leary’s Restaurant and Bar and the employees at the bar knew she was intoxicated and did not stop her from driving or call her a cab. Despite her slurred speech and unsteady walk, the bar continued to serve her alcohol. After leaving the bar, the officer crashed her car into a Honda with five students from India.
The driver of the car hit by the police officer suffered a head injury, a fractured rib, liver trauma, lung contusion, and contusions to the skull. His four passengers were killed, according to the article.
