McDonald's ordered to pay $27M in deaths of teens

McDonald's says it'll appeal a $27 million Central Texas jury verdict against it in the deaths of two teenagers in a traffic crash.

The teens died in the crash while en route to a hospital after a fight outside a McDonald's restaurant in College Station in 2012.

A release Wednesday from the attorney representing the families of 18-year-old Denton James Ward of Flower Mound and 19-year-old Lauren Bailey Crisp of Dripping Springs says McDonald's lax security led to their deaths.

The two were with another couple when they stopped at the restaurant. The young men were beaten in the parking lot. Their girlfriends tried to get them to a hospital but the driver ran a red light and was hit by a pickup, killing Crisp.
