Texas family files wrongful death lawsuit against bar that allegedly served drunk driver

The family of a Texas woman killed by a drunk driver has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the bar that served the suspect shortly before the car accident.

John and Melinda Red, the parents of 18-year-old accident victim Michelle Red, have filed a Texas wrongful death lawsuit against Pompeii, which is the bar where suspected drunk driver Lakedra Franklin allegedly became intoxicated before getting into a car accident last February.

Although Franklin is facing charges of intoxicated vehicular manslaughter, it’s the bar that Red’s parents are holding accountable under Texas dram shop law, a law which makes it possible under some circumstances to sue the establishment which served alcohol to an intoxicated person who later caused an injury.

Franklin’s court date is in April.
