10 Sep Tracy Mullinax as administrator of the estate of her mother, Paula Williams, deceased v. Buffalo Rock Company, et al.
CIRCUIT COURT OF JEFFERSON COUNTY JURY VERDICT OF $2,000,000.
Paula Williams was killed at 5:00 a.m. when her Honda Accord was hit by a Pepsi roll-down truck weighing 30,000 lbs. There was evidence that the Buffalo Rock truck was traveling between 63 mph and 71 mph in a 45 mph zone, and that Buffalo Rock negligently supervised and trained its truck drivers. After the wreck, an email was sent from a citizen to Buffalo Rock complaining of the roll-down trucks speeding through the intersection where Ms. Williams was killed. Although Buffalo Rock received the email, the driver’s supervisor did not know about it and never met with the driver about the email.
