The family of a Staten Island woman, who was killed in a hit-and-run accident, has filed suit against the New York Mets. The family is blaming the Mets for serving too much alcohol to the driver causing him to become intoxicated at Citi Field on the night of the April incident. The lawsuit filed last month names the Mets, the driver Brian McGurk, stadium vendors and a local bar, Nurnberger Bierhaus, as Defendants. It was contended that all of the defendants were responsible for the woman’s death. The 40-year-old driver, McGurk, was said to have left the scene after hitting Mrs. Clara Almazo. The woman saved her eight-year-old grandson’s life by pushing him away from the speeding Ford Escape as they were walking home from church services on Holy Thursday. The boy was not injured, but tragically, his grandmother was killed.
