A Brazos County jury awarded a $27 million verdict against McDonald’s Corp. and two of its subsidiaries in a premises-liability lawsuit.

An 18-year-old man and an 19-year-old woman, both white, had stopped for an early morning visit at a McDonald’s in College Station, the plaintiffs alleged in a July 24, 2013, amended petition in William P. Crisp Jr. v. McDonald’s.

When they did, they encountered 150-200 individuals, the “vast majority” of whom were from “nearby black fraternities,” according to the police report that plaintiffs submitted as evidence. The police report goes on to state that a fight ensued between the man and members of that crowd. In an attempt by the couple to get to a hospital for the man’s resulting injuries, the car they were in ended up in a red-light collision that left the couple dead.
