A wealthy portfolio manager bought a $100,000-plus Porsche for his wife before she allegedly killed a man walking on a sidewalk with his first date in a drunken, high-speed crash “knowing she was an unfit driver” after she was overserved alcohol at several bars, the victims’ family alleges in a newly amended lawsuit.

Lawyers for the family of Joseph McMullin, 33, announced they amended a civil lawsuit filing against the allegedly intoxicated driver, Kristina Chambers, who faces a criminal charge of intoxicated manslaughter in the April 19 death. The amended petition includes Chambers’ husband, Xuan Si, and four bars Chambers allegedly visited that night – Lola’s Depot, The Eagle Houston, The Ripcord and JR’s Bar & Grill.

“In our continued pursuit of justice for Joseph McMullin, his family, and loved ones, we insist that any venue or individual that enabled, encouraged, contributed to, or participated in an alleged highly intoxicated Ms. Chambers getting behind the wheel be held fully accountable,” said Jesus Garcia, Jr., who represents McMullin’s family. “This was an unspeakable tragedy that could have been prevented by any number of factors that evening, all that would lead to Joseph continuing to live a happy and thriving life. It is believed that Ms. Chambers was overserved at these bars, a violation – in this case, fatal – of dram shop law, and that Mr. Si negligently entrusted the operation of the Porsche to his wife, knowing she was an unfit driver. While the grief of the McMullin family will never subside, we must act against all parties who bear responsibility to ensure a senseless tragedy like this never again occurs.”
