GA Men’s Club to Pay $1.75 Million for Over-Serving Alcohol Leading to Deadly Crash
The family of a woman who was killed in a vehicle accident with a drunk driver, who had just left a men’s club in Conley, GA, outside Atlanta, will receive $1.75 million from the club. The driver had a blood alcohol content of .398, nearly 5 times over the legal limit, at the time of the accident.
The drunk driver was driving his Lincoln Town Car the wrong way on I-20 eastbound in July 2008 and slammed head-on into the victim’s car. Both drivers died at the scene of the accident. A passenger in the woman’s car died enroute to the local hospital.
The lawsuit alleged that Club Blaze should have known the man was intoxicated and should have stopped serving him. The jury found that the club over-served alcohol to the man.
