Kentucky Timber Company To Pay $7 Million

Last updated on Monday, November 14, 2011

(HARRISTON ARK.) - A federal jury in Harrison Ark. has concluded that a Kentucky timber company was at fault in a fatal truck accident and awarded the family of the victim $7 million.

The 2008 crash in Yellville claimed the life of 42-year-old Roger Reagan.

The jury on Friday found that 54-year-old Morgan Quisenberry had been driving about three hours longer than is legal when he lost control of his rig and crashed into two cars and a tractor-trailer driven by Reagan.

Plaintiffs' lawyers showed that Quisenberry lied to his employer about his driving record, which included two DWIs. Dunaway Timber Co. of Fordsville, Ky., is to pay the judgment.
