As a Dallas Car Accident DUI Attorney, I am reporting this tragic pedestrian monster car wrongful death accident.
The parents of a Granbury college student who was struck and killed by a monster truck outside a Dallas strip club, have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver of the truck and the club.
The lawsuit comes after Kasey McKenzie, 23, was killed while leaving with friends after a party at the Spearmint Rhino Gentlemen’s Club shortly after 2 a.m. when Eric Crutchfield, pulled his custom 2003 Ford F-250 truck out of a parking space and ran over her with both front and rear tires.McKenzie died at the scene.
The lawsuit claims that the club was negligent when bartenders served Crutchfield past the legal limit of intoxication and allowed him to get in his vehicle and drive, even though it was apparent he was drunk, according to the parent’s lawyer.
The lawsuit also claims that Crutchfield was driving with a suspended license and was so intoxicated at the time of McKenzie’s death that he didn’t know he had hit anyone.
Crutchfield’s truck had a lift kit that limited his field of vision and was not in keeping with federal and state regulations.
The Dallas resident was charged with intoxication manslaughter after his blood alcohol level was shown to be 0.18, more than twice the legal limit at 0.08, according to Dallas police spokesman Kevin Janse.
