Family Receives $6 Million Settlement from 2010 Truck Accident

A $6 million lawsuit has been settled that was filed by the victims of a truck accident near Seattle in 2010, according to Heraldnet.com. The accident occurred on Highway 522 in Washington when a dump truck slammed into a car, catastrophically injuring the family inside.

The family in the car had pulled over to the side of the road because their car broke down. The car was next to the highway barrier; there was no shoulder on the road. The driver, the mother of the children, had turned her hazard lights on and was waiting on a tow truck when a dump truck hit their stationary car. The truck was owned by Bobby Wolford Trucking and Demolition, Inc. The victims, a 6-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl, suffered skull fractures, broken bones and other serious injuries. They boy was in a coma for several weeks.

“It’s a great result for the children, because their proceeds are being placed in a court-supervised trust that will help provide their needs in the future,” said attorney Derek Moore.
