Shawn Scott entered an intersection on a green light and was struck by a northbound semi-truck operated by Mark Stokes, who went through the red light. Scott suffered severe brain injuries which resulted in his death 8 days later. Witnesses testified Stokes ran a red light and that one of the two red lights at the intersection was not illuminated at the time of the crash. Stokes denied seeing any lights at the intersection and claimed the one illuminated light was obscured by a telephone pole. Stokes settled for his 1 million policy prior to trial. Plaintiff’s Estate contended that Meade Electrical failed to maintain the traffic lights pursuant to its contractual obligation with the State of Illinois. Attorney’s for Meade Electric contended that Stokes failed to heed the red light and that he was sole and proximate cause of the crash.
