A Galt couple has won a record personal injury verdict of $34.9 million following a 2010 vehicle accident. A Sacramento County jury awarded the judgment earlier this month.

In the accident along Highway 12 near Isleton, Debra Lynn Hackett suffered a head injury and was paralyzed from the waist down when a semi truck crossed the center line and plowed into her bus. She was awarded $31.9 million for personal injury and past and future lost wages, while her husband, William, will receive $3 million for a loss of consortium, according to court records.

Personal injury claims were made against Silva Trucking Inc. of French Camp and driver Elaine McDonold. The lawsuit was filed in April 2012.
