CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - The family of a woman who died after the vehicle she was riding in crashed into the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper has received a $100,000 settlement.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2aMFIGA ) that the money approved by a judge Thursday will go to Amanda Strickland’s three sons.

Strickland and another passenger, Brandon Avery, both died after Jessica Carline crashed into a sign in front of the hospital.

Investigators say she had used inhalants before the crash and was traveling at 76 mph.

Carline, who was 17 at the time, was charged as an adult and pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide. She received a sentence of 12 to 16 years in prison.

Court documents say Strickland’s family asked for the settlement last month, and Progressive Insurance offered to pay it.
