Wife of car accident victim reaches $521,500 settlement

A settlement amounting to over $500,000 was reached recently in a personal injury lawsuit filed on behalf of a man killed in a car accident in Champaign County, Illinois. The lawsuit claimed wrongful death because the allegedly intoxicated woman that collided with the victim had been previously been stopped by a police officer and friend who, according to the lawsuit, should not have allowed the woman to drive.
