10 Sep Est. of Dorothy Hodge v. MHF Logistical Solutions
Tallapoosa County Circuit Court Settlement of $1,000,000.00
On October 8, 2008, a tractor trailer operated by Thomas Lee Stephens of Jacksonville, Florida ran the red light on 280 as Dorothy Hodge attempted to cross 280 along Lafayette Street in Dadeville. As a result of this collision, Dorothy Hodge lost her life. Attorneys for Stephens and MHF repeatedly denied liability, claiming Mrs. Hodge was the one who ran the traffic light and that she was at fault. However, the existence of video evidence that demonstrated that Hodge had the green light and Stephens had indeed run through his red light was uncovered.
