According to a May 28 Chicago Sun-Times article titled “Man who lost leg in construction zone crash wins $7 million from city”, a man has been awarded $7 million by a Cook County jury.

Don Martinelli, a 61-year-old man, lost his leg in a major crash while working at a city of Chicago construction site.

The accident happened when he was an Ameritech employee in 2002, marking underground phone cable locations near a road construction zone at Milwaukee & Leavitt in Bucktown. A motorist struck him, leaving him pinned him against his work truck – which lead to the amputation of his leg from above the knee.
