Settlement Reached In Parking Garage Death

There's word of a settlement in a lawsuit filed after the death of a Lexington woman, Stephanie Hufnagel.

She and her unborn baby were killed in May of 2006 after a three ton piece of concrete fell from the Chase Bank parking garage.

Hufnagel's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the owners of the garage a few months after her death.

A settlement was reached on Thursday, but attorneys for both sides say the terms are confidential.

    I will always remember hearing that tragic story the day it happened. My heart goes out to the man that lost his wife and baby.

    I agree Kymom.... That was the saddest story ever. I think I cried everytime I read that and I did not even know her or the famil.....sad. Good luck Brian.

    I agree with kymom, this poor guy deserves every single cent awarded. It would be a shame if he didn't get a substantial amount from this.

    My thoughts are with this man. Although no matter what money he gets it will never replace the loss of his loved ones...

    I agree with kymom wholeheartedly. This poor man lost a wife and a child in one incident, due to the negligence of the owners of this garage and the people who were responsible for keeping it safe for others. I hope he is able to use this money to do something good for their remaining son (if I remember correctly). Granted, no amount of money can heal his heart, much less bring his loved ones back to him, but the fact that he and his son will be financially well provided for can hopefully ease things for him somewhat.

    He deserves every penny he gets from this. This poor man has been through so much and my thoughts and prayers are with him.
