Hyundai Settles In Death Of Motorcyclist
The Orange County Register reports Hyundai has made a confidential settlement with a family whose son was killed while riding his motorcycle in 2005. The incident was caused by a Hyundai executive who was driving drunk.
The 23-year-old musician and motorcyclist was killed when the executive lost control of his Hyundai SUV after drinking at a company-sponsored dinner, hitting the young man causing him to be thrown from his motorcycle onto the freeway where he was run over by several other vehicles.
The family of the young man sued the executive and Hyundai claiming the company had a corporate culture of promoting drinking at company functions and that Hyundai helped the executive flee the country shortly after the accident.
The family stated it is pleased with the settlement. Their son was a college student and participated in a band that often played at Disneyland.
