Postal Service Told To Pay $11.6 Million For Crash

Posted by:

ATHENS, Ga. — A federal judge in Athens has ordered the U.S. Postal Service to pay $11.6 million to a woman and her son who were injured in a highway accident in Monroe four years ago.

Judge Clay Land decided the amount of compensation last week after a trial. Court documents show the bulk of the money will go toward caring for the woman’s child, Anthony Bilbrey, who suffered a severe brain injury while still in his mother’s womb.

The documents show Anthony was delivered by an emergency C-section that doctors performed on his comatose mother, Mary Bilbrey.

The documents state Mary Bilbrey was riding in a car driven by her fiance, who lost control when a Postal Service truck pulled in front of him, and that the car struck a fence, causing a board to strike her in the stomach.
