A confidential settlement has been reached in the case of a 2007 Washington helicopter crash that killed four people and ignited a 485-acre forest fire. The settlement came just days before jury selection began in a lawsuit pending in King County, Wash. The lawsuit was filed in 2009 by the family of Si Young Lee, the president of a South Korean lumber company, who was visiting the state to purchase timber for export. It was alleged that design flaws in the R44 helicopter caused the crash and that the helicopter fuel tanks should not have erupted on impact. All four occupants burned to death.
