Jurors awarded $33.2 Million to George Baldwin, a victim injured in a drunk driving case in Lake County, Illinois, according to a story in the Lake County News-Sun.   The driver of the vehicle was a friend of Baldwin’s who had participated in under-aged drinking with Baldwin before the accident, at a friend’s house.  The car involved in the accident was traveling 120 miles per hour seconds before the accident, according to the car’s black box.

This story is related to another story I blogged a few weeks ago.  The owner of the house where the drinking party occurred, previously agreed to pay the victim $2.5 Million to settle the negligent supervision claims against her.  That post is here.

The victim is paralyzed from the chest down and is disabled for life.
