$2.25 Million to Be Paid By Officer and Bar In Deadly Car Crash
A police officer and the bar which served her will pay a total of $2.255 million for the wrongful death of four, and the injuries to another man, reports St. Louis Today.
A 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, the article reports. 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.
