Family of teen killed in crash gets $5.25M | Waynesboro News Virginian.

A jury in Albemarle County awarded $5.25 million to the family of a 16-year-old who was killed in a car wreck in 2008.

On May 9, 2008, Kenneth Barbour was driving a tractor-trailer when he ran a red light and hit Sydney Aichs driving a 1999 Chevy Cavalier. Barbour pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and reckless driving and was sentenced to a 2 year prison sentence.

Aichs’ family sued Don B. Swisher Trucking Corporation, McCann Delivery Service and Kenneth Barbour, saying Barbour’s employers didn’t give him enough training and supervision and that his truck was defective. The suit also accused Barbour of not slowing down when he approached the intersection of  US 29 and Ashwood Boulevard.

I know the verdict seems like a lot of money, but I know that they would all give it back without thinking if it meant they could bring back their daughter and sister. There is little worse than a parent losing a child and it is something they will probably never get over for the rest of their life.
