BUFFALO, New York — A settlement has been reached between a western New York doctor and the family of a skateboarder he struck and killed while driving drunk.
The settlement announced Tuesday ends an ongoing civil trial initiated by the family of Alexandria Rice against Dr. James Corasanti in Buffalo.
Terms weren't disclosed.
The lawsuit sought damages for the terror and psychic injury Rice's parents say their 18-year-old daughter suffered before she was hit in July 2011, her pain and suffering before she died, and their economic loss as a result of her death.
Corasanti was convicted in 2012 of misdemeanor driving while intoxicated but acquitted of manslaughter. He was released from prison after serving eight months of a one-year sentence.
