A jury in Wayne County, W.V., recently awarded $2.69 million to the families of four people killed in a fatal drunken driving accident. The jury ordered a Kentucky man, Bobby Lynn Frazier, to pay 80% of the award and a car dealership in Ashland, Ky., to pay 20%. Police said Frazier was driving a pickup truck stolen from the dealership that hit another pickup head on. All four occupants of the second pickup were killed. The accident occurred April 17, 2008 in Kenova, W.V. Frazier pled guilty in 2009 to four counts of drunken driving causing death and other charges. He was sentenced to six to 26 years in prison.
