A Chatham County jury delivered a post-apportioned award of more than $3.3 million in the case of a man who was injured when he hit a vehicle parked along the side of an exit ramp with a blown-out tire.

The plaintiff suffered multiple internal injuries, including a punctured lung and eight broken ribs that left him with a permanently diminished lung capacity, said his attorney Justin Jones of Savannah. The crash happened on Interstate 16 in Savannah after the driver of the disabled vehicle fell asleep while waiting for help to arrive.
