As authorities continue to investigate the crash that left Macy Mruk of Copley recovering at an Akron hospital, a popular bar in the Merriman Valley may have to answer some questions of their own.
A manager at The Dorm spoke to AkronNewsNow.com on the condition of anonymity.
He says he doesn't know if Mruk was at the bar that night, despite claims by family members she was going to the bar with friends.
Mruk, 18, is legally underage to purchase alcoholic beverages and a Revere High School student. She was driving her car on Bath Hills Boulevard early Thursday morning.
The manager says he hasn't heard too much about the incident at this point, but will look further into the situation, and bouncers check ID's of all patrons before they enter the bar.

18-year old Macy Mruk has been listed in stable condition at an area hospital according to the State Highway Patrol. Mruk was ejected from her car in Bath Township early Thursday morning.
An 18-year-old woman was thrown through her car's sunroof following a serious crash in Bath Township early Thursday morning, and her family is partly blaming a Merriman Valley bar for allegedly serving the underage girl alcohol before the accident.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol reports Macy Mruk, 18, of Copley, slammed into a tree off Bath Hills Boulevard, sending her straight through the sunroof before the car flipped over, landing on its top.
Macy's mother, Diana, told AkronNewsNow her daughter, a Revere High School senior, had gone out with friends last night at one particular Merriman Valley bar despite being underage. (Editor's note: we have removed the word "frequented" regarding attending the bar.)
She says her daughter shares some of the blame for drinking while underage, but the bar should have taken greater steps not to serve her.
"If it wasn't for them serving her, she wouldn't be in the hospital. And if she wasn't out drinking, she wouldn't be in the hospital. It's a catch 22. But they are adults. She just turned 18," said Diana.
AkronNewsNow is not naming the bar at this time, pending an interview with management of the establishment.
"This bar should be held accountable for serving a minor. And she was not the only one. She was there with a group of people that were underage." said Diana.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating and confirms they were made aware of the allegations of serving minors alcohol, but declined any other comment pending further investigation.
State troopers said Mruk was taken to an Akron hospital with serious injuries.
