A wrongful death lawsuit has been settled in the case of a girl killed when her family’s van was hit by a vehicle driven by a Santa Fe surgeon. The family of 4-year-old Yuliana Aremi Reyes Vasquez filed the lawsuit against Dr. Deborah Aaron and her insurance company in April 2012. The settlement has been approved by the court with the amount being confidential.
Authorities said Dr. Aaron’s vehicle hit the passenger side of the family’s van on Dec. 30, 2011, killing the little girl. Her mother and 3-year-old sister were injured. Blood-alcohol tests showed Dr. Aaron was legally drunk at the time of a crash. Witnesses couldn’t agree which driver ran a red light before the crash, but a drunk driver would be a good probability. Dr. Aaron pled no contest to driving while intoxicated. The civil case was settled.
