On June 6, 2005, the plaintiff was stopped at a traffic light in the far left lane at the intersection of Route 28 and Frying Pan Road in Fairfax County. She was traveling southbound. The defendant was traveling northbound on Route 28 in his tractor-trailer, which carried a load of large tree logs. The defendant swerved to avoid hitting a vehicle that had stopped in front of him, clipped the vehicle and entered the intersection fish-tailing and out of control. The tractor-trailer flipped over on its side and the logs crashed down upon the plaintiff, shattering all of the windows on the driver's side of her car and the back windshield. The defendant was charged with reckless driving and accepted liability.

The plaintiff suffered multiple contusions, neck and back pain, headaches, anxiety, trouble sleeping, a mild concussion, post traumatic stress disorder, left hip pain and right wrist pain. Her wrist was surgically repaired for a tear of the triangular fibrocartilage (TFCC). She was treated by a neurologist and an orthopedic surgeon. She was 20 years old at the time of the crash. Her medical bills totaled $50,643.72. Her case settled for $300,000.
