A Richmond, Va. jury has awarded a research librarian at the Library of Virginia $8 million in damages in a lawsuit. The woman was struck by a GRTC Transit System bus and was severely injured. Meikiu Lo, now 34, suffered spinal and shoulder damage and multiple hip and pelvis fractures that resulted in chronic pain after a GRTC bus making a right turn struck her as she crossed a street beside the library where she worked two years ago. She had waited on the sidewalk and was two-thirds of the way across the street when the bus, making a right turn off a city street, struck her. Ms. Lo will likely undergo multiple surgeries for hip replacements before she is 50. Lawyers for GRTC had offered to settle the case for $1.8 million prior to the trial. Their offer was not accepted and the case went to trial.
