On Oct. 1, a jury found that neither party was to blame for a collision that resulted in neck and back injuries for one driver.
In 2004, Christy Chaney’s car was struck by a vehicle driven by Alan Sunberg as both drivers were traveling in opposite directions on Hwy. 190 near Heidenheimer, Texas.
Chaney alleged Sunberg caused the crash when he entered her lane as he attempted to maneuver around a truck that was turning left in front of him.
She said the injuries she sustained required three months of chiropractic treatment. She also claimed experiencing headaches and that an MRI showed possible bursitis from the jarring impact, but she has not received any further treatment.
She sought $75,000 in damages. Sunberg argued that he had to go into Chaney’s lane to avoid hitting the truck.
