BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) - Lawyers for a 26-year-old Gig Harbor man critically injured in a crash last year say he’ll receive $1.3 million as part of a settlement in a related civil case.

Andrew O’Brien was walking home from Tracyton Public House in Bremerton with 23-year-old Alana Kemppainen-Cartwright in September 2014 when they were hit by a car. Kemppainen-Cartwright died at the scene and O’Brien was severely injured.

Authorities believe driver Daniel Krogman had been drinking at the same tavern before the crash. Krogman is awaiting trial on charges of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.

Attorney Jim Holland said in a news release Thursday that O’Brien is still recovering from crash-related injuries.

The settlement was reached with the tavern and O’Brien’s uninsured motorist policy.
