Florida Families Settle Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Traffic Accident

The families of two teenagers who died in an accident in Stuart, FL in August 2009 have settled in a wrongful death lawsuit with a construction company that owned the front-end loader the teens’ vehicle struck.  The amount Sheltra & Son Construction Co will pay was not released in the confidential settlement.

Three teenagers were riding in a Jeep Cherokee traveling on Southeast Cove Road around 2 a.m. when they came upon a road-widening project.  A front-end loader was halfway into the eastbound lane of the road without any flagmen or signs to warn drivers to slow for the vehicle.

The Jeep slammed into the equipment killing all three teens.  The Florida Highway Patrol found the 18-year-old driver had a blood-alcohol level of 0.251, more than three times the legal limit, at the time of the accident.  The other teens were also impaired, according to the police.

One of the teen’s parents settled in a separate lawsuit.
