The father of a minor girl claims his daughter lost the chance to grow up with her mother when her parent was killed in an automobile collision caused by an allegedly intoxicated driver.
Jason Alan McGuiggan filed a lawsuit May 9 in Madison County Circuit Court against Eddie’s Neighborhood Bar and Grill also known as Eddie’s Lounge and El Torero Mexican Restaurant at 2900 Nameoki Road in Granite City.
In his complaint, McGuiggan claims his minor daughter’s mother, Krystal Lynn Moss, was riding in a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier that Johnny Million was driving at about 3:01 a.m. on May 12, 2012, when he lost control of the vehicle and crashed it, leading to Moss’s death.
Just before the collision, Million had been consuming alcoholic beverages at Eddie’s Lounge and El Torero Mexican Restaurant, according to the complaint.
Because of the collision, Lillian Kristine Opal Moss lost her mother, the suit states.
In his complaint, McGuiggan seeks a judgment of more than $100,000, plus costs and other relief the court deems just.
William E. Miller of Alton will be representing him.
Madison County Circuit Court case number: 13-L-727.
