The Chicago law firm Corboy & Demetrio said it secured a $2 million settlement on behalf of the family of a Chicago teenager who was killed in May 2010 when the car she was riding in was hit by a Domino’s Pizza delivery car in Evergreen Park.
The law firm said 17-year-old Danielle Sellers died after the car she was in was struck by a pizza delivery car that had the right of way at the intersection of 100th Street and Turner Avenue.
Sellers, a junior at Evergreen Park High School, and two other girls from the school were in the car. The drivers of that vehicle and the pizza delivery vehicle were ticketed by police.
The law firm said the settlement was paid by the insurance companies for the two drivers.
There were no stop signs at the intersection, but signs were put up shortly after the deadly crash, the law firm said.
