A U.S. District Court jury in Illinois has awarded a Hartford, Ky. Man $708,000 in a suit against Jeffersonville-based American Commercial Barge Lines.

Dennis Shreve, 43, injured his back in 2002, while taking the slack out of steel cable that secured barges that were traveling through a lock on the Mississippi River at Winfield, Mo.

The verdict was reached earlier this month in the Southern District of Illinois at East St. Louis.
