Damages awarded in fatal crash

Posted on Jun 17, 2010

A jury awarded $6 million in damages to the family of a Palm Beach teenager who was killed in a car crash in 2008. The driver, Carlos Pozo, was driving up to 100 mph in a residential area when the accident occurred. He is currently serving 5 and a half years in prison for vehicular homicide.

Kaitlin Kazanjian was 16 when she was killed in the car accident while skipping school with Pozo. Pozo lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree. The Acura he was driving was cut in half, leaving Pozo with minor injuries and Kazanjian dead.

Kazanjian's father, John, a sheriff's sergeant says it is not the money that matters, but that Pozo accepts responsibility for his daughter's death. Pozo will not face the $6 million judgement until he is released from prison in 2015.
