The estate of a 21 year Michigan man killed in an alcohol-related, double-fatal pickup-truck crash has sued the driver, two bars, and the victim’s father who owned the vehicle.
Such a sad story here. The deceased’s mother, as representative of her son’s estate, is suing the driver and her deceased son’s father (who owned the subject vehicle), as well as the two establishments that the deceased and the driver had been drinking at that evening.
After leaving the establishments, the deceased gave his father’s keys to the driver who eventually lost control and crashed into an oil-change shop killing the 21-year-old man as well as a 26-year-old passenger that had been out with them that night. The driver was drunk, and it has been estimated that he was driving between 78 and 86 mph in a 45 mph zone when he lost control.
The driver has pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder and is set to be sentenced to 14 years in prison on April 1.
What a tragic waste of three lives.
