The Virginia Supreme Court ruled in favor of a local widower whose wife died from injuries sustained when a cement truck hit the car in which the two were riding in 2007. This action reinstated the Charlottesville jury's original $8,577,000 award.

An Allied Concrete cement truck driven by William Donald Sprouse crossed Thomas Jefferson Parkway's center line on June 21, 2007, tipping over and landing on Isaiah and Jessica Lester's vehicle. Sprouse later pleaded guilty to manslaughter. Authorities ruled speed was a factor in the fatal crash.
