SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A construction company had to send a letter of condolence under a $400,000 settlement of a lawsuit resulting from a 2009 accident in which a 76-year-old Santa Fe woman was killed.

Dorian Wilkes was killed in a collision when trying to drive out of a housing development and turn onto Old Pecos Trail.

The lawsuit said a large pile of dirt from a utility construction project obstructed views of motorists’ on Old Pecos Trail.

The Santa Fe New Mexican (https://bit.ly/ObfmiV ) reports that the November settlement that it obtained under an open-records request had Blueline Construction Inc., pay $300,000, the city $60,000 and the state $40,000.

The settlement with Wilkes’ two sons also required Blueline to send them a letter of condolence signed by two principals of the construction company.
