MOTOR VEHICLE the family of a woman killed when a tractor-trailer ran into her car was awarded $1.75 million by a Virginia jury on April 24. Marvin Andrews was driving a tractor-trailer in the rain on Route 47 in Charlotte County, Va., when he saw a line of cars stopped in his lane. It was too late to stop; so, in an attempt to avoid a rear-ender, he swerved into the oncoming traffic lane and collided head-on with the car of Norma Locke, 37, killing her. Locke’s estate sued Andrews and the two trucking companies for which he worked, RLT Trucking Co. Inc. and Curtis Tharpe Trucking Co. The defendants stipulated to liability, leaving the jury to determine damages. The defendants were found jointly and severally liable. Estate of Locke v. Andrews, No. CL-02-438 (Henrico Co., Va., Cir. Ct.). PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEYS: William B. Kilduff, Emroch & Kilduff, Richmond, Va.; Richard L. Locke, Locke & Partin, Richmond DEFENSE ATTORNEYS: D. Cameron Beck Jr. and James W. Morris III, Morris and Morris, Richmond, Va.; Alan M. Maxwell, Weinberg, Wheller, Hudgins, Gunn & Dial, Atlanta Source: National Jury Verdict Reporter
