A pedestrian who was injured after being hit by a security company vehicle in Half-Way-Tree Square, St. Andrew, six years ago, has been awarded $3.5 million in damages by the Supreme Court.
The award was handed down on Tuesday in favour of Brian Foster by Justice Cresensia Brown against Vanguard Security Company.
Mr. Foster filed a lawsuit against Vanguard after he was hit by a vehicle owned by the company in July 2012.
Mr. Foster was attempting to use the pedestrian crossing when he was hit.
He sustained injuries to his left leg.
The company had challenged the claim that Mr. Foster was on the pedestrian crossing when the incident occurred.
However, Mr. Forster's attorney, Hugh Wildman, introduced testimony from Radcliffe Lewis, former head of the Highway and Traffic Division of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, that there was a pedestrian crossing where the mishap occured.
