Two file suit over deadly St. Louis tent collapse

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

ST. LOUIS -- Two people injured when a party tent collapsed outside a downtown St. Louis bar last month have filed suit against the bar and the company that leased and installed the tent.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that 45-year-old Janet Martinez and 25-year-old Kurt Volk, both of St. Louis, filed separate suits claiming significant injuries from the April 28 accident outside Kilroy's Sports Bar near Busch Stadium.

About 100 people were injured and one killed when a sudden storm with strong winds blew over the party tent as fans from nearby Busch Stadium celebrated a Cardinals victory.

Kilroy's owner Art Randall said he is not surprised by the suits and said his family is still struggling after the accident. A spokesman for Sun Rental declined comment.
