Domino's to appeal $32M suit filed in fatal Beaumont crash

Jefferson County jurors this week awarded more than $32 million to the estate of Devavaram and Ruth Christopher, whose car was struck head-on by a Domino's pizza delivery driver in August 2012.

According to a Beaumont Police Department accident report, Domino's driver Joshua Balka lost control of his 2002 Ford Explorer as he was driving in the 3100 block of S. Major drive around 7:10 p.m. on Aug. 11, 2012. Balka swerved across Major into on-coming traffic and collided with the Christopher's vehicle, the report said.

The Christophers and Balka were all taken to Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital after the accident. Ruth Christopher died later that night and Devavaram suffered injuries that left him mentally impaired, according to the lawsuit.

Balka was later cited for failure to control speed and for having defective equipment, the report reads.

2. Domino's was one of these fucking places

in which they guaranteed a 30 minute delivery and if it didn't happen would take the cost of the pizza out of a drivers pay.

3. Yes, it's in the article.

They allow 9 of the 30 minutes for the driver to get from the store to the destination. Do you think that might be overly generous and allow the driver 10 minutes to return back to the store?
