ANCHORAGE- The family of a 20-year-old Anchorage woman killed in a collision is suing the bar where authorities say the man charged in the death admitted to drinking heavily before the crash.

The lawsuit accuses Chilkoot Charlie's and 23-year-old Lane Douglas Wyatt of liability in the death of Citari Townes-Sweatt.
According to murder and other charges against Wyatt, the airman ran a red light at about 5 a.m. June 30 in Anchorage, slamming into a car driven by Townes-Sweatt. His criminal trial is set for March.
The Anchorage Daily News (http://is.gd/yuyqop) says the civil lawsuit was filed Nov. 22 by attorneys for Lanita Sweatt-Sanders.
Wyatt's attorney in the civil case could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.
Chilkoot Charlie's co-owner Mike Gordon places responsibility in the death with Wyatt.
