(Seven Figure Amount)
The head usher of a Central Florida Baptist church was driving with her pastor and his wife to a church conference on Interstate 95 when the vehicle they were in collided with a rental van driven by a college lacrosse team. Everybody in the crash was injured, but the head usher died from her injuries. Liability between the two drivers was heavily contested. An eye witnessed said that the college driver was speeding and that the pastor did seem to change lanes suddenly. The day before jury selection, both the church insurance company and the rental car company entered into a confidential seven figure settlement with the head usher’s family.
