St. Louis Judge approves settlements for daughters of man killed in auto accident

Lee Widaman, father of Elise L. Widaman and Natalie J. Widaman, was killed when he was struck by a car on the side of the road after he stopped to help a fellow motorist. The daughters reached a settlement early on with one insurance company, but did not finally resolve the case until last month, when during the course of trial a final settlement was reached. An order approving that settlement was entered on August 19. Under the settlement each daughter will receive $189,700, and Lee Widaman’s mother will receive $29,900.
