Tiger Woods sued over deadly crash

Tiger Woods sued over deadly crash”

Woods and the general manager of the restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, were named in the wrongful death lawsuit brought by the parents of the 24-year-old bartender, USA Today reported.

The family of a Florida man who purportedly was drunk when he crashed his vehicle is suing Tiger Woods, his girlfriend and his restaurant company, saying they should have prevented the man from drinking too much and driving to his death.

His family alleges Woods and Herman knew Immesberger personally and were aware or "reasonably should have known" of his tendency to over-consume alcohol as a 'habitual drunkard'.

The news broke hours after Woods played his opening practice round for the 101st PGA Championship, the year's second major golf tournament which starts Thursday at Bethpage Black on Long Island in NY.

It is unclear whether Woods was at the restaurant before Immesberger's death on December 10, 2018.

Representatives for Tiger Woods did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

The lawsuit was filed in Palm Beach County, Florida.

Immesberger was said to have been recruited to work at the restaurant by Erica Herman (left), who manages "The Woods" and is the girlfriend of Woods (right).

Woods "was directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management ... were not over serving its employees/customers", the suit claims.

A police said Immesberger lost control of his auto on his way home and swerved across three lanes before going airborne and overturning.

According to TMZ, Immesberger finished his shift on December 10 but stayed at The Woods to drink at the restaurant and was allegedly served to the point of "severe intoxication" before being sent out to his auto.

At the time of the crash, he had blood-alcohol level of.256, more than three times the legal limit.

The suit seeks damages "in excess of $15,000" and a jury trial. Immesberger died at the scene.
