The Defendant rented a Ryder box truck and pulled the truck over stopping on the shoulder to check the address. Our client was traveling at the posted speed limit of 50 mph. As our client approached, the Ryder truck suddenly attempted to make an illegal u-turn across the west lanes and just in front of our client blocking both lanes. Our client attempted to avoid the collision by heavily applying the brakes, but the vehicles collided with a substantial impact. The collision caused significant disc herniation, which resulted in unsuccessful pain management followed by surgery.
