A Connecticut Superior Court jury has awarded $15.7 million to survivors and family members of three people killed in a 2007 crash on an Interstate highway. The jury found that Northeast Carriers, the owner of a tanker truck that jumped the median near an interchange, was negligent and reckless, and caused the crash. The tanker, which was carrying nearly 7,000 gallons of heating fuel, went out of control and crashed head-on into southbound traffic on Nov. 2, 2007. Witnesses testified that the driver, who was killed in the accident, appeared to be racing with another truck driver. Lawyers for Northeast Carriers argued that the second driver deserved some blame for the crash.
