CLEVELAND (AP) A judge has ordered the state to give an Ohio woman’s family $3.3 million for failing to fix the potholes that caused a fatal 2008 traffic crash.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported a Court of Claims judge issued the award April 4 to the husband and adult children of Pauline Miller. The woman was killed when a truck crashed head-on into her vehicle after hitting potholes on Ohio state Route 165.
Judge Patrick McGrath’s decision said the state Department of Transportation was negligent in failing to maintain the roadway in reasonably safe condition.
Miller, of East Palestine, was on her way to work at Youngstown hospital at the time of the crash.
A transportation department spokesman said the decision is being reviewed.
