The family of a Florida man who purportedly was drunk when he crashed his auto is suing Tiger Woods, his girlfriend and his restaurant company, saying they should have prevented the man from drinking too much and driving to his death.

The golfer should have known that Immesberger, who apparently had a drinking problem, was "habitually addicted to the use of any or all alcoholic beverages and/or was a habitual drunkard", says the lawsuit.

Immesberger worked a shift as a bartender on December 10 but continued to drink "to the point of severe intoxication" before getting in his vehicle.

A bartender at Tiger Woods' Florida restaurant was allegedly over-served after his shift last December and died in crash driving home.

A police report showed that Immesberger's blood alcohol limit was.256, more than three times the legal limit, at the time of his death.

Tiger Woods, his daughter Sam Alexis Woods, and his girlfriend Erica Herman.

Immesberger was recruited to work at the restaurant by Herman.

The attorneys also said Woods and Herman knew of his alcoholism but were drinking with Immesberger a few nights before the fatal crash.

Kuvin said there had been surveillance footage of Immesberger drinking extensively on the night of the crash, but claims that the restaurant destroyed it. Woods, the family said, is "directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management. were not over-serving its employees/customers".

Immesberger also had been involved in another alcohol-related crash in November, the suit adds. "It was a awful, bad night", Woods said. It also states the golfer himself "knew Immesberger personally and through information and believe (sic), Herman had discussed Immesberger and his drinking of alcohol with Tiger".

Immesberger later crashed his vehicle in Martin County on Southeast Federal Highway near Southeast Colonial Drive and died.

During a press conference for the PGA Championship, Woods was asked about the lawsuit where he explained that it's a very sad situation.

The suit is seeking an unspecified amount of damages. Employees and management of the restaurant were described as being aware that Immesberger had attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and as having continued to serve him drinks even though they knew he had "no other way home" apart from driving there.
