Eatery settles wrongful death suit for $1.1 million
CHARLESTON, South Carolina (Reuters) – The owner of a South Carolina restaurant has agreed to pay $1.1 million to settle a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of a man killed last December in a fiery car crash.
Quentin Gregory Miller, 32, died on December 17 when his car was struck from behind on a bridge near Charleston in an early morning collision and burst into flames, according to police.
The driver of the vehicle that struck Miller’s, Adam Joseph Brunelle, was an assistant manager for Charleston’s Husk restaurant at the time. He was charged with felony driving under the influence and is free on bail awaiting trial.
