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 crash happened on Interstate 16 in Savannah after the driver of the disabled vehicle fell asleep while waiting for help to arrive.
