ORLAND PARK, Ill. (WGN) -- A school teacher in Orland Park is suing a retired priest over a hit-and-run accident in December.

Elizabeth Kosteck and her co-worker Margaret Leja were walking to their cars after a holiday party Dec. 4. Both women were struck by a car driven by Father Paul Burak. Leja was killed.

The lawsuit names Burak and the restaurant that Kosteck said over-served him at the party.

Burak was initially charged with aggravated DUI but that charge was later dropped.
