A woman seriously injured in a two-car collision in Middlebury is receiving $1.9 million as settlement.
Back in April 2018, 58-year-old Loreta Vaichus was driving her Toyota Corolla near the intersection of Middlebury Road (Route 64) and Spring Road when a BMW, driven by Christina Robinson, smashed into the right side of her car, severely damaging both vehicles. Robinson died from the collision. Vaichus sustained multiple organ and skeletal injuries, as well as swelling and bleeding of the brain. The accident kept her debilitated for many months after the incident. According to reports, Robinson was DUI when the crash occurred. The case filed by Vaichus centered around negligence on the part of Robinson’s employer, Good News Cafe, which the plaintiff claimed let her drink before leaving the establishment. Vaichus is still experiencing symptoms related to her injuries but has otherwise recovered substantially.
