For publication opinions today (1):

In Estate of Verna D. Carter v. Holly F. Szymczak, a 10-page opinion, Judge Bailey writes:

Holly F. Szymczak filed a negligence complaint against Verna D. Carter (“Carter”) alleging that Carter’s negligence caused an automobile collision and consequent injury to Szymczak. Upon Carter’s death, the Estate of Verna D. Carter (“the Estate”) was substituted. The Estate appeals a judgment upon a jury verdict in favor of Szymczak. We affirm. * * *

The Estate was not entitled to judgment on the evidence. The evidentiary rulings of the trial court were not a manifest abuse of discretion and did not deprive the Estate of a fair trial. The jury verdict and the judgment entered thereon are affirmed.
