This case is the wrongful death of a 3 year old girl. The defendants were an 18 year old boy who was driving his aunt’s vehicle while intoxicated at 4 AM and his aunt who owned the vehicle. The boy fled to Mexico after the accident and has not been located since. The aunt denied allowing her nephew to drive and claims that he took the vehicle without permission. Through the testimony of several individuals, it became evident that the aunt was lying. The case ultimately settled for $1.1 million dollars prior to trial as the insurance company was small and a higher verdict would ultimately bankrupt them and we would not have received any funds.
