Family sues Kwik Shop for selling alcohol to Omaha teen who died in crash

 The family of a teen boy killed in a 2018 drunk-driving crash is suing the gas station for selling alcohol to minors.

George Gervase, 17, was speeding near 192nd and Pacific streets when he lost control hitting a power pole and a tree. He died at the scene.

The Gervase family said the Kwik Shop employee, Kevin Hart, was negligent in selling alcohol to someone who appeared underage and did not ask for ID. They say Kwik Shop had a duty to supervise its employees, but allowed Hart to repeatedly sell alcohol to minors.

The family is asking for more than $11,000 for damages, which includes funeral expenses.

A judge is taking the matter under advisement.
