Court of Appeals Affirms Verdict for Passenger Injured by Pizza Delivery Driver

The Illinois Appellate Court for the Fifth District affirms a jury’s award of over $2,000,000 for a van passenger injured when a pizza delivery driver ran into his vehicle. In Bruntjen v. Bethalto Pizza, LLC, d/b/a/ Imo’s Pizza, the Court let stand the jury’s findings of fault against the defendant driver, the franchise where he worked, and Imo’s corporate headquarters. This opinion once again confirms that the people of Southern Illinois are entitled to expect all drivers to obey the rules of the road when operating their vehicles, whether for personal or business use.
