Las Vegas Businessman Reaches $21M Settlement In Fatal DUI Crash
LAS VEGAS — A prominent Las Vegas businessman awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty in a deadly drunk driving crash has reached $21 million settlement with the family of a mother of three killed in the wreck.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Monday that Scott Gragson is expected to pay $12.8 million to the family of Melissa Newton, and his insurance company will pay $8.2 million.
