The family of a Pennsylvania man who was killed during a test drive with an intoxicated salesman has settled their lawsuit for $4.3 million. The former salesman Michael Hershey is in prison for the December 2010 crash in Lancaster County, which killed 48-year-old Jon Jensen and injured his 20-year-old son. The car dealership, Imports of Lancaster County, will pay $1.3 million. Landyshade Mulch Products, a mulch supplier whose truck caused Hershey to swerve, will pay another $3 million. The judge who sentenced Hershey to up to 14 years in prison called the Landisville man “a disaster waiting to happen,” given his drinking problem and prior driving violations. The victim had been a health administrator at the York County Prison.
