CLEVELAND (AP) — A judge has ordered the state to give an Ohio woman's family $3.3 million for failing to fix the potholes that caused a fatal 2008 traffic crash.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/12sgktk ) reports a Court of Claims judge issued the award Thursday to the husband and adult children of Pauline Miller. The 49-year-old nurse was killed when a truck crashed head-on into her vehicle after hitting potholes on Ohio State Route 165.

Judge Patrick McGrath's decision says the state Department of Transportation was negligent in failing to maintain the roadway in reasonably safe condition.

Miller, of East Palestine, was on her way to work at Youngstown hospital at the time of the crash.

A transportation department spokesman says the decision is being reviewed.
