Jury Slaps Werner Enterprises With $40.5 Million “Nuclear Verdict” In Fatal Crash

Jury Slaps Werner Enterprises With $  40.5 Million A New Mexico jury awarded the family of a woman killed in a February 2017 crash involving a student driver for Werner Enterprises Inc. around $ 40.5 million in damages on Oct. 11 following a two-week trial. According to court documents, Felipe “Jose” Johnson, of Apopka, Florida, had only been driving for Werner for eight days when the tractor-trailer he was driving crossed four lanes of traffic and a concrete median and collided head-on with the 2012 Honda Pilot driven by Kathryn Armijo. “It was a long hard-fought battle for the family [of Kathryn Armijo],” David Harris, plaintiff co-counsel and partner of Sico Hoelscher Harris, told FreightWaves.
