Bar accused of over-serving driver in fatal DUI crash
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Lexington officials are accusing a bar of over-serving a customer who was involved in a fatal DUI crash last month.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Horseshoes Kentucky Grill & Saloon was issued a show cause order Thursday by the Lexington Alcoholic Beverage Control Office. Investigators say the bar in January overserved 41-year-old Joey Lee Bailey, who had also been drinking at another bar that night.
Bailey then drove south in a northbound lane on Interstate 75. He collided with another vehicle, killing himself and a family of five from Michigan.
Bailey had a .306 blood alcohol limit at the time of the crash. That is nearly four times the legal limit.
A Horseshoes representative said in a statement that they are cooperating with the investigation but declined to comment further.
