Alyah Payne, a former Sea-Tac employee, has secured an $11 million settlement from the Port of Seattle and construction company, Hensel Phelps after sustaining life-altering injuries in a crash involving two baggage tugs.
The incident occurred as Payne, operating one of the baggage tugs, collided with another while both vehicles were heading in the same direction around a blind corner. It was a significant safety issue overlooked by the Port of Seattle and Hensel Phelps.
“The facts of this case are such that Alyah was forced to go on a one-lane road and head in a direction against traffic that would be coming the other way,” attorney Ray Bishop told KING 5.
