JONESBORO, AR - The last of the pending lawsuits from an accident in which a car plowed into a crowd at the Jonesboro Auto Auction has been settled.
The February 2003 accident occured when a compact car went out of control as it entered the auction building for viewing, injuring 28 people.
Thirty-one court actions have been settled, the last of which was approved by U.S. District Judge George Howard, Jr. That suit was brought by a family from Poplar Bluff, Missouri.
Terms of the settlement were kept confidential. Attorney Donn Mixon of Jonesboro says the total settlements exceeded the $2.05 million in insurance policies that covered the auction.
Mixon says it is possible that two or three more lawsuits could still be filed over the accident.
