(AbsoluteNews.com) – Every day, about 28 people die in America as a result of drunk drivers. Texas had the highest rate of fatal drunk driving accidents in the country from 2009 through 2018 with 13,592 deaths. Grandma Tamra Kindred, 59, and her granddaughter, 16-year-old Aujuni Anderson were among the victims during that period. A jury has now awarded their family billions of dollars.
The Kindred/Anderson family reached a $301 billion verdict against Beer Belly’s Sports Bar for overserving a customer who ended up driving intoxicated and killed 59-year-old Tamra Kindred and her 16-year-old granddaughter, Aujuni Anderson, in 2017. https://t.co/e58ucfL7Z2 pic.twitter.com/D006fu0AJq

On November 12, 2017, 29-year-old Joshua Delbosque got behind the wheel of a car after consuming at least 11 drinks at Beer Belly Sports Bar in Corpus Christie. He ran a red light sometime later while driving 91 mph, slamming into Kindred and Anderson as they were driving home. The crash killed all three. According to authorities, Delbosque’s blood alcohol level was 0.263% at the time of the accident.
The family of the victims sued the sports bar, alleging it had overserved Delbosque. Attorney John Flood said the bar was “trading money for the safety of their patrons and the public” by serving the man even though he was already drunk.
A Nueces County jury agreed and found Beer Belly guilty of overserving Delbosque. They awarded the victims’ family $301 billion. The family has reportedly said it doesn’t expect to ever see any of the money but hopes it will teach businesses about the importance of not continuing to serve people who are already obviously intoxicated.
