A jury has awarded $5.25 million to the parents and sibling of a 16-year-old girl who was killed in a motor vehicle crash in 2008. The jury found that Don B. Swisher Trucking Corp., McCann Delivery Service and Kenneth Barbour were negligent when Barbour hit Sydney Aichs’ car with a tractor-trailer while running a red light on May 9, 2008, at an intersection. Barbour pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and reckless driving earlier this year and was sentenced to a two-year active prison sentence. The teenager’s parents filed a lawsuit against all of the Defendants in 2008. The Complaint alleged that Barbour’s employers didn’t train or supervise him adequately and allowed him to drive a truck with defective parts.
