AWARDED $900, 000
A woman injured her back in the wreck of the “Old 611” steam engine and won a $900,000 verdict from a Portsmouth jury. Barbara Greenstreet, 42, of Virginia Beach, argued, the May 1986 accident left her unable to work and in constant pain. Greenstreet had a disc removed from her back because of injuries sustained in the accident and was forced to quit her job as a condominium manager because of her back problems. Attorney Willard J. Moody, Sr., who represented Ms. Greenstreet, reported that she received four times more than the $200,000 amount offered by officials for Norfolk Southern Corp. to settle the case out of court.
