The family of a teen killed when the rear axle on their 1999 Toyota 4Runner broke won a $12 million verdict in South Carolina Thursday.

Lacee Dial was killed Sept. 15, 2012. She was 17 and a high school senior. The lawsuit claimed that, after the axle fell apart, her 4Runner rolled over and hit a utility pole and that she was trapped for approximately two hours in the vehicle before she died from her injuries.
