The families have filed wrongful death lawsuits by the families of Chloe Robinson and Salma Gomez.
According to the authorities, the two Antascocita High School students got in the car of 17-year-old Jagger Smith who was drunk. Both girls were killed in the car crash that ensued.
Smith was sold alcohol at a convenience store in Humble a few hours before the crash, according to investigators. The store clerk is also implicated in the lawsuit for selling alcohol to a minor. Smith’s mother, and the parent company to the convenience store where Smith was sold alcohol are also named in the lawsuit.
Smith’s mother, Shelly Smith, is included in the lawsuit because Jagger Smith is a minor, and therefore cannot be sued.
He store clerk, Gumaro Campos, is known to sell alcohol to minors, says the Robison family’s lawyer Randy Sorrels. The store clerk, also known as “Romeo,” is facing charges for selling alcohol to minors.
