Settlement Reached With Trucking Company for Family of Man Killed in Collision
In 2017, the attorneys of Cunningham Bounds reached a settlement with YRC Trucking on behalf of the family of Wade Ivey, senior pastor at Inspire Church in Hurley, Mississippi. On the night of January 8, 2017, Wade went to the Dollar General store on Moffat Road to pick up a few items needed by his family. He was a frequent customer of the store, and had previously traveled the route hundreds of times. Upon leaving the store and crossing Moffat Road to go home, Wade’s vehicle was struck on the driver’s side by a speeding 18-wheeler pulling two trailers. He was killed instantly. In addition to traveling over the speed limit, Plaintiffs alleged that the YRC driver violated numerous laws, regulations and industry standards.
