Tiger Woods sued over restaurant employee's deadly drunk driving crash

BETHPAGE NEW YORK- MAY 13 Tiger Woods of the United States looks on during a practice round prior to the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black Tiger Woods sued over restaurant staffer's drunk driving death

Tiger Woods and the general manager of his Florida restaurant face a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the parents of a 24-year-old bartender of the Jupiter establishment.

Woods' restaurant is managed by Erica Herman, who is his girlfriend. His blood alcohol level was.256 at the time of the fatal crash, more than three times the legal limit.

The golfer should have known that Immesberger, who apparently had a drinking problem, was "habitually addicted to the use of any or all alcoholic beverages and/or was a habitual drunkard", says the lawsuit.

Immesberger, according to the report, finished his shift on December 10, 2018, but stayed after to drink at the restaurant.

Neither Woods' agent nor a media relations representative answered CNN's requests for comment.

Dow tumbles more than 500 points as China retaliates on tariffs
North American stock markets fell in late-morning trading as the trade war between the USA and China escalated. Analysts have said investors should prepare for a more volatile stock market while the trade dispute deepens.

The Florida Highway Patrol said at the time that Immesberger's accident occurred at approximately 6 p.m. along a stretch of US 1 nearly 16 miles north of The Woods.

Tiger Woods of the United States looks on during a practice round prior to the 2019 PGA Championship at the Bethpage Black course on May 13, 2019 in Bethpage, New York. Immesberger crashed on his drive home and died in the accident.

Immesberger lost control of his auto around 6 p.m. that night while driving home, swerved across three lanes and went airborne before landing in a grassy area on Federal Highway in Port Salerno, Florida, according to the Palm Beach Post. The suit alleges that the employees and management at The Woods promoted drinking by employees. As Woods has staged a career comeback that began a year ago and culminated in his triumph last month at the Masters, Herman has become a familiar figure to golf fans, who have seen Woods greet her with affection after completing rounds. Woods recently received the Presidential Medal of Freedom after winning The Masters.

The lawsuit filed by attorneys Craig Goldenfarb and Spencer Kuvin seeks medical and funeral expenses as well as other 'appropriate damages'. The attorneys for Immesberger's family are conducting a news conference Tuesday morning. Immesberger died at the scene.
