A trucking company will pay $9 million to the parents of two sisters who were killed in a highway accident involving one of its trucks in Madera County.
Seven-year-old Korren Radke and 2-year-old Chloe Baker of Coursegold died in June last year when a concrete pumper truck
rear-ended the family car near the Rocky Cutout area on Highway 41.
The owner of the truck, Brundage-Bone Concrete Pumping, will pay
the parents of the two victims to settle the wrongful death civil lawsuit in Fresno County Superior Court.
The California Highway Patrol says the truck driver was driving at an unsafe speed and was unable to stop when it hit the family car, which had stopped for a disabled vehicle on the highway.
