West Virginia Jury Awards $2.69M in Fatal DUI Wreck

May 3, 2011

The families of four people killed in a fatal drunken driving accident have won a $2.69 million verdict in their lawsuit stemming from the crash.

The Herald-Dispatch reports that a Wayne County Circuit Court jury ordered Bobby Lynn Frazier of Louisa, Ky., to pay 80 percent of the award. The April 22 decision also orders a car dealership in Ashland, Ky., to pay 20 percent.

Frazier entered a Kennedy plea in 2009 to four counts of drunken driving causing death and other charges. He was sentenced to six to 26 years in prison.

Police said Frazier was driving a pickup truck stolen from the dealership that hit another pickup head on. All four occupants of the second pickup were killed.

The accident occurred on April 17, 2008.
