10 Sep Brenda Fagan v. Alabama Carriers and Bobby Ray Haynes
Lawrence County Circuit Court Settlement of $650,000
Mr. Fagan was traveling alone the morning of the accident in his pick-up truck to a local Church of Christ in order to perform volunteer work at the homes of recent tornado victims in Lawrence County. Mr. Fagan stopped at a BP gas station at the corner of Alabama Highway 24 and Lawrence County Road 434 to get fuel for his chain saw and then pulled up to the intersection stopping for a red light. According to all witnesses, a tractor-trailer driver by the name of Bobby Ray Haynes, an employee of Alabama Carriers, ran the red light causing the accident in which Mr. Fagan was killed. By seeking witnesses from a nearby Jack’s Restaurant, plaintiff was able to establish a time-line indicating that the Alabama Carriers’ truck probably ran the red light.
