Update 1/20/17: Jurors awarded $15 million in compensatory damages to Megan Richards for the injuries she suffered in the 2015 trucking crash that killed five of her Georgia Southern University classmates. The jury apportioned 100 percent of fault to trucker John Wayne Johnson and trucking firm Total Transportation of Mississippi LLC. It also found Johnson's actions showed conduct potentially warranting the imposition of punitive damages. However, Bryan County Superior Court Judge Charles Paul Rose told jurors the parties' attorneys agreed to accept the award "as-is," without a determination of punitives. CVN will provide additional news coverage and gavel-to-gavel, on-demand video of the trial as soon as possible.
