A wrongful death lawsuit against a woman charged with driving a car into a woman at a Massachusetts car wash and killing her in 2007 has been settled. The suit was filed against the Defendant last year. The crash killed Robin Young, a resident of Danville, N.H., as she was wiping down her car outside a carwash in Haverhill, Mass. Terms of the settlement are confidential and can’t be disclosed. Mrs. Young’s daughter, Taylor, who was 12 at the time, and inside the car, will receive about $100,000 as a part of the settlement. There was a separate claim for the children. The Defendant claimed her brakes failed. She was to go back to court August 25th to stand trial again on charges of vehicular manslaughter. An April trial in the criminal case ended in a hung jury.
