Former WXII Anchor Sued By Father Of Man Killed In Wreck

A Winston-Salem television anchor facing three charges for a fatal wreck is now being sued by the father of the man who died in the accident.

The wrongful death lawsuit was filed last week in Forsyth County Superior Court against W-X-I-I anchor Tolly Carr and three bars that the lawsuit says served Carr the night in March that Casey Bokhoven was killed.

An attorney for Bokhoven's father filed the lawsuit.

Casey Bokhoven was killed March eleventh. Police say Carr drove through a construction zone, ran off the road and hit Bokhoven. He was indicted April 23rd for felony death by motor vehicle, felony serious injury by vehicle and D-W-I.

Police say Carr's blood-alcohol content was point-13 about four hours after the wreck. The legal limit for driving in North Carolina is point-oh-eight.

Carr's attorney isn't commenting on the lawsuit.
