RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The family of a man killed in a car crash has settled a wrongful death claim against the driver for $1.4 million.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1QpMt0E ) reports the insurance company for 80-year-old David Limbrick, the driver, has agreed to pay William “Bill’ Hillsman’s mother and three siblings $1.4 million for his Feb. 26 death.

Hillsman family attorney John Owen told the newspaper Monday both parties were able to resolve the issue short of having to file a lawsuit. Owen says the settlement with Travelers Insurance Co. was approved Friday by Chesterfield Circuit Judge Edward A. Robbins Jr.

Authorities say Limbrick had suffered a seizure while driving in February, causing him to lose control. His car crashed into the side of Hillsman’s home, killing him instantly.
