SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The parents of a South Jordan man struck and killed by a drunken driver on Interstate 215 are suing the bar where the woman allegedly bought drinks before the crash.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/22P7PsQ ) the lawsuit filed Tuesday claims Piper Down Pub provided drinks to Chanel Nielsen on March 25 and continued to serve her when the bar should’ve known she was intoxicated. The parents of 27-year-old Michael McMillian Jr. are seeking an unspecified amount for pain and suffering and other damages.

According to the suit, Nielsen was traveling east in the westbound lanes of I-215 when she crashed head-on into McMillian, who died days later from his injuries.

The owner of Club Ozone, the corporation doing business as Piper Down, didn’t provide comment, citing the pending litigation.
