Restaurant, owners and staff charged under the Ontario Liquor License Act after a fatal accident

KITCHEN –
A Cambridge restaurant and four people associated with it are charged in connection with a fatal driving accident.

St. Louis Bar and Grill, two of its owners and two staff members are facing 21 allegations under the Liquor License Act, police said on Friday.

The charges are related to a fatal accident in November 2019 that resulted in the death of 67-year-old Kenneth Scott.

He was returning home after putting on his winter tires when another driver crossed the center line on Townline Road and collided with his vehicle frontally.

Jason Fach, 38, pleaded guilty to impaired driving resulting in death in December. An agreed factual statement states that it had had four 20 ounces. beers in just over an hour at the St. Louis Bar and Grill on the night of the accident.

Fach was sentenced to six years in prison.

On February 28, police announced that they had accused the restaurant, its owners and two staff members.

The charges include selling spirits to an intoxicated person, allowing drunkenness in authorized premises and failure to facilitate the inspection.

The accused have not been publicly named.

These allegations have not been proven in court. The St. Louis Bar and Grill franchise in question declined to comment.

This is the second time in less than a year that a factory in the Waterloo region has been accused of driving death.

Last year, a number of people associated with another Kitchener restaurant were charged after a patron was killed in an accident at Alpine Plaza.

In that case, the owners and an employee of the Chicago Pub and Billiards were accused of the death of 40-year-old Walter Cabrera.
