Jury Rules in Favor of Defendant Truck Driver and Against Plaintiff Driver in Personal Injury Suit Arising out of an Intersectional Accident

Following trial in the Burlington County Superior Court, a jury returned a verdict in favor of the Defendant Truck Driver, and against the elderly plaintiff, finding that the proximate cause of the accident at issue was plaintiff’s execution of an improper left turn. Using the light sequence records, and the testimony of a traffic engineer, the defense provided sufficient evidence for the jury to find that the traffic signal in question could not have displayed a green left turn arrow as alleged by plaintiff in her testimony.
