J.J. Huggins of The Eagle-Tribune reports that GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna has reached a multimillion-dollar court settlement with the victim of a car accident he was involved in.
Lindsay Taylor, 27, and her parents, Elaine and Jeffrey, sued Erna for the April 11, 2007, three-car crash in Massachusetts.
Taylor rode in the back seat of a Toyota Camry driven by Eric Sargent, which was hit by the 41-year-old rock star's Hummer. Taylor suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, according to court documents.
Lindsay Taylor claimed Erna wasn't paying attention and was therefore negligent and caused the crash. Erna claimed that part of the responsibility laid with Sargent — he argued that Sargent first rear-ended a Honda Odyssey driven by Maureen White of Londonderry — and he claimed the roadway design contributed.
The petition for the settlement, signed by attorneys on all sides of the case, calls for the defendants and/or their insurers to pay an immediate cash payment of $3.3 million, including $1.8 million for attorneys fees.
