A woman is awarded more than one-million dollars from a Martin County Grand Jury in a DUI case.
Officials say Andrea Perry of Inez was hit from behind in an accident in May of last year.
Doctors say the accident caused a head injury and a permanent injury to her shoulder.
Deputies with the sheriff's department testified Roger Maynard, the driver of the car that hit her, smelled of alcohol.
Police say Maynard registered .177 on a breathalyzer test and was arrested and charged with DUI, his second offense.
Maynard later pleaded guilty to the charges.
