A jury awarded last week the widow of an Augusta man more than $2.5 million in a wrongful death suit.
The Columbia County civil jury awarded the sum Thursday to Pamela Jacobs.
Jacobs filed a lawsuit in May 2010 against tow truck driver Michael Faron Brown, Renevo Services LLC and Nuvell National Auto Finance LLC.
Jacobs’ husband Bill died on April 9, 2009, after being run over by a tow truck driven by Brown. As a Renovo contractor, the Gaston, S.C., man was attempting to repossess a truck from the Jacobs’ friend Joe Clements in Martinez.
