The family of an O'Hara man who died in a car crash sued Rivers Casino in Allegheny County court on Tuesday.

Gianluca Cresta, 41, crashed his Ford Taurus on Sept. 30, 2012 while driving on Route 8 near the McDonald's in Shaler after drinking for several hours at the North Shore casino, the lawsuit alleges.

Employees at Rivers served Cresta “several double vodka and waters” between 8:30 p.m. and 1 a.m. even though he was visibly intoxicated, according to the lawsuit.

The casino had not yet reviewed the lawsuit and declined to comment on the pending litigation, a spokeswoman said.
