Attorney Newell commented on the settlement: “I am happy that the car insurance company made a very fair settlement offer which avoided the necessity of suing my client’s friend and classmate. Teenage drivers and high speeds are a potential lethal mixture and we are fortunate that none of the 3 occupants sustained life-threatening injuries.”
