A Montana woman whose mother and daughter died in a drunken driving crash has filed a lawsuit against a Helena bar, alleging the driver was served alcohol shortly before the crash, despite being visibly intoxicated.

Heather Smith filed the lawsuit against O’Toole’s Bar and Lounge; the estate of its former owner; and bar employee William Gleed. Gleed has pleaded not guilty to two counts of serving alcohol to an intoxicated person.

The driver, 22-year-old Arielle Michelle Schescke, has pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide for deaths of 51-year-old Mildred Richard and 16-year-old Justine Smith near East Helena.
