MLB | Hancock’s father sues restaurant where son became inebriated

The Associated Press reports Dean Hancock, father of deceased RP Josh Hancock, is suing Mike Shannon, longtime St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster who owns the restaurant at which Josh Hancock became inebriated, allegedly resulting in the crash that killed him. Other defendants include Patricia Shannon Van Matre, the restaurant manager and Shannon's daughter; Eddie's Towing; tow truck driver Jacob Edward Hargrove, whose tow truck was struck by Hancock's car; and Justin Tolar, whom Hargrove was assisting. The lawsuit claims the restaurant was negligent in providing Hancock with too many drinks; meanwhile, the lawsuit further claims Tolar was negligent in not maneuvering his car off the freeway, and Hargrove was negligent for not clearing the highway in the 15 minutes he was assisting Tolar.
