GEORGIA (WTXL) - A lawsuit by one of the two survivors of a crash that killed five Georgia Southern University students is playing out in court this week.
A truck crashed into the car the nursing students were in on interstate 16 in April 2015.
Megan Richards and her parents sued truck driver John Wayne Johnson, the trucking company and its parent company.
The civil trial got underway yesterday when the jurors were selected and opening arguments delivered.
Attorneys for Richards contend the crash left her injured and her life will never be the same.
"We've got a young lady whose life has been changed in radical ways because of a traumatic brain injury," said Bob Cheeley, an attorney.
Testimony was expected to start today. Richards attorneys expect to call about 20 witnesses.
