(WALB) - A Georgia family won a multi-million dollar settlement in a lawsuit against a trucking company following a wreck on I-75 in Tift County.

A DeKalb County jury awarded the Zegel family $11.5 million in their suit against PN Express.

The Decatur family was stopped in traffic due to construction on I-75 on May 11th 2007.

An 18 wheeler slammed into their Prius.  This was all that was left of it.

Bill Zegel wasn't seriously injured, but his wife Sonya and their 18-month old daughter Lillian were.
