The father of Devin Willock, a Georgia Bulldogs lineman who died in a car crash, has filed a lawsuit against multiple parties for his son's wrongful death.

The suit was filed in Gwinnett County, Georgia, and includes the University of Georgia Athletic Association, Jalen Carter, the estate of Chandler LeCroy, and an Athens strip club as defendants. The plaintiff seeks $2 million in damages.

According to the police, LeCroy's SUV was traveling at 104 mph when it crashed, killing both him and Devin Willock, while injuring two other staffers.

LeCroy's blood-alcohol level was also nearly two-and-a-half times greater than the state's legal limit. The attorney for Devin's father claims that school officials knew about LeCroy's driving history, including four speeding tickets in the last six years.

The Georgia Athletic Association has responded by stating that the complaint lacks factual basis and that they plan to dispute the allegations in court.

Jalen Carter, a former Georgia defensive lineman and the ninth overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, turned himself in for street racing and received a sentence of 12 months probation, a $1,000 fine, and 50 hours of community service.

He pled no contest to misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and racing and is required to complete a state-approved defensive driving course.

The tragic incident occurred just hours after Georgia's second straight football national title, in which Devin Willock was a part of the team.

The lawsuit filed by the father of the deceased lineman underscores the importance of responsible driving and accountability for one's actions. The case will be decided in court based on the evidence presented.
