ROCHESTER, N.Y. - A New York jury has awarded $2.25 million in damages to three members of the all-girls Windsor Wildcats team involved in a fatal bus crash in 2005.

A jury deliberated for four hours on Monday and determined the amount of cash that should be awarded to hockey players Carly Labadie and Troy Gault, now both in their 20s.

Labadie was awarded $1 million and Gault will get $500,000.

An assistant coach, 35-year-old Jason Mailloux, was awarded $750,000 for both past and future pain and suffering.

All three suffered orthopedic injuries, and were diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder following the crash.

Four people were killed in the collision in January 2005 when a bus carrying the team rear-ended a parked tractor-trailer near Rochester, N.Y.

Several separate cases still await trial on damages.
