May 12 13
A Palm Coast woman whose 17-year-old daughter was killed last summer in a crash on Interstate 95 has sued the gas and convenience store that the woman claims sold her daughter the alcohol that prevented her from making 'a safe and informed decision' about getting into a pickup driven by a friend under the influence of marijuana. Smith's mother Kathleen Smith, who is represented by Rue, Ziffra & Caldwell, filed the lawsuit against Sunoco Inc. and the estate of Lane Burnsed and his father James A. Burnsed Jr. Meredith Smith's blood alcohol content was 0.081, the lawsuit states. The legal limit is 0.08. On the day of the accident, Smith bought alcohol at the Sunoco at 703 U.S. Highway 1 in Bunnell and then drank at least some before getting in the pickup with Burnsed and another person. As a result of consuming the alcoholic beverages sold to her by the Defendant, Sunoco Inc.'s employees or agents, Meredith Smith became intoxicated and incapable of making a safe and informed decision as to whether to travel in a motor vehicle with another minor individual who had been under the influence of marijuana.
