The jury awarded the family of Carli Sears the money after a civil suit filed against Alexander Hambrick, 22, who was driving drunk Jan. 17, 2016, when he struck Sears. Sears, a Charleston native, was visiting in Morgantown when she was killed while walking to a friend’s apartment from downtown.
The jury deliberated for about 90 minutes before returning its decision. The jury asked if there was an upper limit to the amount of money it could give to compensate the Sears family for sorrow and mental anguish over the loss.
