A woman injured in a collision with a tractor-trailer recovered $693,750 in a trial against the truck's driver and his employer. In 2008, Cynthia Saucedo, then 39, sustained ankle, hip and knee fractures when she crashed into the side of the truck. She blamed truck driver Henry Leon Duke and his employer, AAA Cooper Transportation, alleging Duke made too wide a turn and didn't watch out for traffic. She sued them for nearly $3 million, alleging her injuries prevent her from pursuing a career in nursing, which she was studying before the crash. The defendants argued Saucedo wasn't paying attention and failed to hit her brakes. The jury found the defendants 75 percent and Saucedo 25 liable. Saucedo's $925,000 award was reduced due to comparative fault.
