$2.3 Million Settlement for Death of Greenwich College Student

The estate of Justin Brown, of Greenwich, received court approval for a $2.3 million settlement of its wrongful death claim arising out of an accident in which Brown was a passenger of Evan Kimia three years ago. The men were classmates at Greenwich High School and had just finished their first week of classes at Norwalk Community College when the accident occurred at 12:40 a.m. Sept. 2, in Greenwich.

The suit alleged Kimia, now 20, was drunk and speeding when he lost control on a tight curve near Lake Avenue. "His Volvo slammed into a tree, tearing off the passenger door and leaving a 200-foot trail of debris. Although wearing a seat belt, Brown suffered serious skull and face injuries and died as a result of the crash." Read more.
