FORT WORTH, Texas — Six Flags Over Texas and the German manufacturer of a roller coaster from which a woman fell to her death last year have reached a settlement with the victim's family.

In a joint statement Tuesday by all parties, Six Flags said that it and Gerstlauer Amusement Rides had reached the deal with the family of Rosy Esparza.

Terms of the settlement weren't disclosed. But family attorneys Frank Branson and Garret Chambers said the family "is very pleased with the settlement and appreciates the condolences offered by Six Flags and Gerstlauer." The statement says Gerstlauer "is also very pleased with the settlement."

Esparza fell 75 feet to her death while riding the Texas Giant roller coaster in July 2013 at the Arlington park. The ride reopened that September.
