A jury has awarded $27 million in damages to a family over a propane explosion at a central Indiana horse farm that killed a man and injured three family members. The jury in Morgan County, Ind., awarded damages against the Defendants, including the Martinsville-based South Central Indiana REMC electric utility and its propane subsidiary. The verdict will be paid by the utility’s liability insurance carrier unless an expected appeal is successful. The 2004 explosion near Martinsville destroyed an indoor horse arena and fatally injured 32-year-old Steve Fredrick of Indianapolis who was house-sitting in an adjacent apartment. The decedent’s wife, their two-year-old son, another adult relative and two-year-old girl all received severe burns.
