Charleston restaurant to pay $1M in death lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The parent company of a Charleston restaurant will pay $1.1 million to the family of a man killed in a drunken driving crash that authorities say was caused by 1 of the restaurant's employees.

Investigators said 32-year-old Adam Burnell has just left his job as an assistant manager at Husk restaurant last December when he rear-ended a car being driven by 32-year-old Quentin Miller on the Ravenel Bridge. Miller died in the fiery wreck, and police say Burnell's blood-alcohol level was 0.24%.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports the settlement calls for Miller's parents to get $518,000, Miller's common-law wife to get $91,500 and the remaining $490,000 to go to attorneys' fees and costs. The settlement should be finalized at a hearing later this week.
