Families Of Comair Crash Victims Decide To Settle

The estates of two victims of the Comair 5191 crash have reached legal settlements with the airline.

According to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Lexington, the estates of Pricilla Johnson and Mary Jane Silas have agreed to confidential settlements with the airline.

Johnson and Silas were two of the 49 victims who died in the August 27th crash.

Comair spokeswoman Kate Marx says the airline is fulfilling its commitment to ensure prompt and fair settlements for the families of victims.

According to court documents, Johnson's estate had filed suit against the airline, but a legal claim had not yet been filed by the estate of Silas.

The flight crashed in the pre-dawn darkness shortly after takeoff from the wrong runway at Blue Grass Airport in Lexington.
