The parents of a teenager who was killed in a car crash have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a Glenwood Springs bar. It was alleged in the suit that the bar served the underage driver alcohol before the accident. The parents of 16-year-old Jennifer Nevarez filed the suit against the Bayou Cajun Restaurant and Bar and one of its bartenders. The teenager and two others were killed in the April 14 crash in Glenwood Canyon.
According to the Colorado State Patrol, all three of the youngsters had a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit for driving. Sadly, the driver had more than three times the limit, with a blood-alcohol content of 0.241 percent. The car driven by the drunk driver ran into a tractor-trailer and the lives of three youngsters were tragically ended.
