Lawsuit filed against Four Loko by parents of dead teen

Posted on June 8th, 2011 No Comments

A wrongful death lawsuit was recently filed against the manufacturers of Four Loko by the parents of a 15-year-old boy who died after he became extremely intoxicated from drinking two cans of the beverage.

On September 25, the under-age Virginia boy purchased Four Loko at a Manassas gas station. He then went to a Sugarland concert, where he was thrown out for inappropriate behavior. After the boy’s mother came to pick him up, he ran from her vehicle and into a dark highway, where he was hit by an SUV. He died in the early morning of September 26.

This is the second lawsuit to be filed against the manufacturers of Four Loko, which is nicknamed “blackout in a can” for its high alcohol content. The parents of the young boy also filed a lawsuit against the gas station from which he purchased the alcoholic beverage.
