Deadly Highway Collision Cause Parents to Sue
Monday, June 23rd, 2008

Last week, Rob Blanck and Lorie Shaddix of Camas, WA filed a lawsuit against Golden Star Restaurant and Lounge in regards to their daughters’ deaths last year.  Jessica Blanck and Kristyne Shaddix both died when hit by Therese Nickelby, who was driving intoxicated after leaving the restaurant.

Nickelby’s blood alcohol level after the crash was at 0.118. She later plead guilty to vehicular homicide and is serving 4 ½ years in prison.

Blanck and Shaddix are now pursuing $4 million dollars for each daughter in damages from the restaurant, alleging that they had knowingly overserved Nickelby who was “visibly intoxicated” before leaving the restaurant.

  1. James Lushe says:

    Does the restaurant and owners have a case to answer for in terms of negligence? surely when the patron left the premises the duty of care by the restaurant had expired?
