Parents of Injured Teen Sues Hosts of Graduation Party

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - The parents of a teenager severely injured in an accident last month are suing the hosts of a graduation party where alcohol was allegedly served to the underage driver.

Bridgett and Michael Looney of Green, about 10 miles south of Akron, are seeking damages against Arlen and Maria Schartiger.

According to the lawsuit, the Schartigers knowingly served alcohol to a 19-year-old at a graduation party July 23.

The teen left with the Looney's son and another boy. He lost control of his truck and hit a utility pole. The second boy died in the crash and Looney's son suffered massive injuries.

Attorneys for the couple requested a jury trial.

Authorities say the incident is still under investigation.
