PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Two women who stopped to help a crashed semi-truck driver and ended up wading through a neurotoxin have settled their lawsuit.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/354o2v ) that Kortney Broecker and Shantelle Nay have secured a nearly $100,000 settlement from LeSaint Chemical Logistics.

According to their lawsuit filed in December, Broecker and Nay were traveling on Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon when they found pieces of metal in the road. The women got out of the car to move the debris and found the overturned truck and trailer, with the driver bleeding.

The women found out later they were wading through 4,000 gallons of a neurotoxin that can be fatal to humans. When they arrived at the next freeway exit, they were ordered to strip down to be hosed off, which they called “traumatizing.”

Both women suffered serious health complications because of the chemical.
