ATHENS, Ga. (WXIA) -- The parents of the former Kennesaw State University student who suffered lifelong injuries after a convicted drunk, hit-and-run driver struck her two years ago filed suit Friday against the Athens bar that served the driver.

The driver, William Wilson Heaton, pleaded guilty in December to DUI and other crimes, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Atlanta Attorney Richard Kopelman filed the lawsuit in Athens-Clarke County Superior Court on behalf of Emily Bowman and her parents.

They are suing the owners of the now-closed bar in Athens, Bar Code, seeking unspecified payment for her past and future medical expenses, as well as for pain and suffering and for punitive damages.

Named as defendants are the CEO of the company that owned the bar, Chadwick Fellows, and the co-owner and manager, Ryan Masters.
