A Richmond man involved in a serious accident four years ago is awarded 23-million dollars.

A jury found Moen Inc. should pay 42-year-old Ricky Jones millions in damages for the 2007 accident.

Jones was driving a tractor trailer on I-295 when a Moen tractor-trailer pulled onto the interstate and collided with his vehicle.

Jones had to be cut from his vehicle and med-flighted to the hospital for treatment of life threatening injuries.

Since then Jones has had one leg partially amputated, suffers from brain injury, and has undergone 26 surgeries.
