Widow Suing Bar over Husband's Death

The widow of a man struck and killed by a train in Dugger last year is suing the bar where her husband had been drinking.

Karen Bedwell is seeking damages from the Uptown Tavern and one of its bartenders for the wrongful death of Jeffrey Bedwell.

Bedwell says that the bar should have cut her husband off long before he wandered out onto the tracks.

Jeffrey Bedwell was killed while sitting on the tracks in back of the bar.

His blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit.
