Attorneys 1:

Donna Keene Holt, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Marsha Hicks.

Attorneys 2:

James C. Cone and Ryan E. Jarrard, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Jennifer Prahl.

Judge(s): FRIERSON

This negligence action arose from an automobile accident occurring on October 8, 2009, in Knox County. The plaintiff filed the instant lawsuit on September 7, 2010, alleging that the defendant was negligent in the operation of her vehicle, causing the rear-end collision. A jury trial was held November 8-13, 2012, at the conclusion of which the jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendant. The plaintiff filed a motion for new trial and a supplemental motion for new trial. The trial court denied these motions, determining that the evidence preponderated in favor of the jury’s verdict. The plaintiff timely appealed. Discerning no error, we affirm.
