Associated Press reports:
A judge has upheld a jury's nearly $2.3 million
The Powell Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2hWNzXy ) Richard and Bill Schlenker, of Meeteetse, were awarded the money in July. The father and son had said they suffered fractured bones in the crash and continue to face lasting health problems.
The Schlenkers' attorney argued that Terry Jones had taken a sharp curve too fast while driving his trailer, causing tons of hay to fly toward the Schlenkers' pickup truck.
The impact sent the pickup down a 15-foot embankment.
A judge approved the multimillion-dollar settlement in December, despite the defense's claims that the award was too large of a sum.
