The family of Kirsten Meyer, a 19-year-old who died in an alcohol-related motor vehicle accident after a 2007 house party, has filed suit against the party host and his parents. The driver who caused the crash had been furnished alcohol at the party. The wrongful death suit seeks damages for the death of the teenager and emotional distress for her parents. The party host, who had been accused of providing alcohol to minors at the house party, pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment in April. The party guest who caused the accident was sentenced to five years in prison for drunken driving. The teenaged victim was a passenger in his car.
