Jury To Begin Deliberations In I-95 Crash

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A state court jury is set to begin deliberations in a multimillion-dollar lawsuit over a crash on Interstate 95 in East Lyme that killed three people in 2007.

The Day of New London reports  the jury is expected to start discussing the case Friday in Hartford Superior Court. Lawyers gave closing arguments Thursday.

A northbound tanker truck carrying nearly 7,000 gallons of heating fuel went out of control and crashed head-on into southbound traffic on Nov. 2, 2007. Witnesses said the driver appeared to be racing with another truck driver.

Killed in the wreck were the tanker truck driver, 51-year-old Peter Derry of Webster, Mass., 54-year-old Luann Dugas of East Lyme and 33-year-old Fred Held of Milford.

The lawsuit includes several defendants including the tanker truck owner, Northeast Carriers.
