A Sinton woman seriously injured in a Walmart parking lot is about to receive a big pay day.
The incident happened back in January 2014 at the Walmart located in Calallen off of Highway 77.
82-year-old Adelaide Price was hit by a truck driven by Joe Ray Cass in the parking lot.
Price suffered multiple fractures to her skull and face, which required reconstructive surgery.
She also suffered fractures to her ankle, pelvis, clavicle and elbow.
Last Friday, a Nueces County Jury found Walmart to be negligent in the accident that left Price seriously injured.
Walmart has been ordered to pay Price 43.6 million dollars.

The jury ruled that Walmart was negligent because the parking lot doesn't have enough markings, flags and signs to ensure their customers can walk in and out of the store safely.
