DALLAS (AP) - The parents of a 23-year-old woman killed when she was struck by a "monster truck" in a gentlemen's club parking lot have won a $10.5 million civil verdict against the driver and the club.
A Dallas civil jury reached a verdict Tuesday in favor of Gary McKenzie and Karen McDonald, parents of Kasey McKenzie. Kasey McKenzie died in March 2011 after she was run over by an SUV elevated on "monster" tires. The driver of the truck, Eric Crutchfield, was drunk.
Attorneys for McKenzie's parents say workers at the Spearmint Rhino club gave Crutchfield alcohol even though it was clear he was already intoxicated.
Crutchfield pleaded guilty to manslaughter and got three years in prison.
An attorney for the Spearmint Rhino did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
