A settlement has been reached in a wrongful death lawsuit after a deputy was killed on the side of the road on Interstate 75 by a drunk driver.

While drunk, Cassandra Smith plowed down Charlotte County deputy Christopher Taylor, who was stopped on the side of the road.

Taylor’s family eventually sued.

The lawsuit was settled for a confidential amount of money. However, the family originally asked for $50,000.
