The family of a South Carolina man who was killed in a fiery car crash has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a Charleston restaurant. Quentin Miller, 32, was killed on December 17 when his car was struck from behind and burst into flames on a bridge near Charleston in an early morning collision. Miller died at the scene.
Adam Joseph Brunelle, the driver of the vehicle that struck Miller’s vehicle, was an assistant manager for Husk Restaurant at the time. Husk had been recognized by Bon Appétit magazine as the top restaurant in the U.S. Brunellehas been charged with felony driving under the influence. In the suit, Miller’s family said that Husk allowed Brunelle to drink alcohol at the restaurant past the legal bar closing time of 2 a.m. A police report shows Brunelle’s blood alcohol level was .24, three times the legal limit in South Carolina. Interestingly, the restaurant takes the position that it was only responsible for its employee while he was working. That does not in my opinion address the legal theory upon which the lawsuit is based.
