Three people injured in a Belleville automobile accident last year filed a dram shop suit against Locust Hills Golf Course in Lebanon alleging the golf course served alcoholic beverages to a man who later collided with them.

Represented by Jerald Bonifield of Belleville, Robin Caldwell alleged she and her minor daughter Natasha were injured June 5, 2007, when Brian Lavalle collided with them at the intersection of Route 161 and Falcon Drive in Belleville.

The third plaintiff, Querra Caldwell was also in the vehicle at the time of the collision.

The plaintiffs allege that prior to him driving, Lavalle consumed alcoholic beverages at Locust Hills which caused him to become intoxicated.

Locust Hills is located at 1015 Belleville Street in Lebanon.

Each plaintiff claims the collision caused them to sustain serious internal and external injuries that caused them to lose income and incur medical expenses.

They are each seeking damages in excess of $50,000, plus costs of the suit.

08 L 151 (20th Circuit)
