SANTA FE (AP) - A wrongful death lawsuit has been settled in the case of a girl killed when her family's van was hit by a vehicle driven by a Santa Fe surgeon.
The family of 4-year-old Yuliana Aremi Reyes Vasquez filed the lawsuit against Dr. Deborah Aaron and her insurance company in April 2012.
While neither side would disclose the settlement terms, the Albuquerque Journal reports court records indicate the settlement was approved last month.
Authorities say Aaron's vehicle hit the passenger side of the family's van on Dec. 30, 2011, killing the girl. Her mother and 3-year-old sister were injured.
Authorities say blood-alcohol tests showed Aaron was legally drunk at the time of a crash. Witnesses couldn't agree which driver ran a red light before the crash, and Aaron ended up pleading no contest to DWI.
