Two young women were driving home from Atlanta, Georgia, to Tampa, Florida, for a holiday. While driving on I-75 South, a tractor trailer truck came over the middle line into the two young women’s lane, causing the first of several collisions. Both young women were killed. The case went to trial in federal court in Tampa. Because liability was disputed, and there were no witnesses to speak on behalf of the decedents, the parties reached an agreement for $800,000.
