Settlement in Fatal Indiana Crash Calls for Caution Lights

September 23, 2011

The Indiana Department of Transportation will install new caution lights at a southern Indiana intersection where three teenagers were killed under a legal settlement with the families of two of the teens.

The settlement Wednesday halted the third day of a trial in Scott Circuit Court in Scottsburg in a lawsuit filed by the families of 18-year-old Cory Emerson and 19-year-old Timothy Brunmeier in the August 2007 crash.

Brunmeier, of Georgetown, Emerson of Greenville and 19-year-old Juliane Kraus of Germany were killed when the Volkswagen Jetta they were in was broadsided by a Chevy Blazer shortly after midnight at the intersection of U.S. 31 and Ind. 356.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., reports the agreement also includes an undisclosed monetary settlement.
