A jury has awarded a West Texas family $4.6 million in a lawsuit they filed against three trucking companies arising out of a 2010 crash that killed two men. The jury found the companies were responsible for the fiery crash that killed 39-year-old Lorenzo Muñoz and 32-year-old Roger Franceware. The two men died August 2010 after the 18-wheeler they were in crashed at a location east of El Paso. The lawsuit, filed by Muñoz’s family against Moore Freight Service Inc., XMex Transport LLC and Trans Front Inc., claimed the men were given an unreasonable schedule that forced Muñoz to drive even though he was fatigued.
