CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) - A lawsuit stemming from the death of a pregnant Newport News woman in a traffic accident has been settled for more than $3 million.

Police say 27-year-old Crystal Burgsteiner was killed when a tractor-trailer hit her broken down car on Interstate 664 in Chesapeake. The accident occurred on June 14, 2012.

Burgsteiner's family sued the tractor-trailer's driver, Christopher L. Johnson, and Vitran Express Inc. in Norfolk Circuit Court.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that the lawsuit was settled recently.
