CHEYENNE, WYO. — A Cheyenne jury has awarded a Colorado Springs couple more than $18 million for injuries from a 2006 crash at the intersection of Interstate 25 and Interstate 80.

A tractor-trailer struck a 1993 BMW driven by Peter Brohpy.

Denver attorney Gary Ceriani says Brohpy suffered severe brain damage in the crash, and that Brohpy now uses a wheelchair and can barely speak.

District Court documents show that a jury found negligence on the part of the trucking company, Omaha, Neb.-based Werner Enterprises, and the truck driver, Cheryl Neal.

The jury awarded Brohpy $15.8 million and his wife, Kate Brohpy, $2.3 million for loss of her husband's future income.

An attorney for Werner Enterprises declined to comment.
