Dallas Jury Returns a $37.5M Verdict Against an Electric Utility Company in Fatal Crash With Truck Driver

A Dallas County jury has returned a $37.5 million verdict against Oncor Electric Delivery Co. and one of its employees in a 2021 crash that killed a truck driver, the Zehl & Associates Law Firm said in a news release.

On Aug. 7, 2021, Oncor lineman Joseph Pederson was driving a Ford F-550, an Oncor service vehicle, on west Interstate 635 in Dallas, when the vehicle slammed into the back of an 18-wheeler that was being driven by Shamsher Singh, according to the release. The 18-wheeler was parked between a lane and the shoulder of the highway.

Singh was outside of the 18-wheeler, inspecting it on the passenger side by the wall of the shoulder, when he was pinned between the vehicle’s tire and the retaining wall, the release says. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
