A Kia Sorento SUV (veh 1) driven by Erik A.

Alcohol was detected in the system of the driver of the SUV, according to the Saint Cloud Times. The initial report by the Minnesota State Patrol states, “Impairment is suspected by the driver of veh 1.”

The Minneapolis and Richfield police departments assisted at the scene.

Is a Bar Legally Responsible?

With accidents caused by a drunk driver, a bar may be legally responsible, meaning the bar could be sued for money damages. A bar can be sued if the bar illegally served alcohol to the at-fault driver prior to the crash. It is illegal for a bar to serve alcohol to someone who has already had too much to drink.
