Bar Owners Will Pay $1.3 Million In Drunk Driving Death
The former owners of a restaurant in Gresham, Oregon will pay $1.3 million after being accused of serving too much alcohol to a convicted drunk driver who killed two young women reports KATU.com. The judge could more than double that amount.
Although the Golden Star Restaurant is now under different ownership, the parents of the young women sued the former owners accusing them of knowingly over-serving the driver and then allowing her to drive.
The bar had a history of over-serving its patrons and had received several written warnings from the Gresham police, an Oregon Liquor Control Commission fine and dozens of patron DUI arrests, according to news reports.
The two young women were celebrating a 21st birthday when their car was hit head-on by the drunk driver going the wrong way on the highway. Neither woman had alcohol in her system.
