Two Men Admit Providing Alcohol to 3 Florida Teens Killed in 2009 Stuart Crash

  • Sumo

Three teenagers killed last August in a car crash at a Stuart, Florida construction site were at an open-house party drinking alcohol before the accident, according to the two men who hosted the party.
Craig Frick and David Harper turned themselves into authorities following the August 2009 car accident that claimed the lives of the three Stuart teens. The two men have been charged with furnishing alcohol to minors.
The parents of one of the victims, 16-year-old Connor Graver, have filed a Florida wrongful death lawsuit against the construction company, saying that it failed to provide adequate lighting at the site.
The vehicle occupied by the teens slammed their SUV into a front-end loader at the Cove Road construction site early in the morning of August 4, 2009. Toxicology reports showed that all of the teens had been drinking; the driver – 18-year-old Nicholas Coady – had a blood-alcohol level of 0.251 percent, more than three times the legal limit in Florida.
The Florida Highway Patrol investigation of the accident said that speed and alcohol were both factors in the accident. Officers found empty beer cans in the vehicle at the scene.
