The family of a woman killed in a Wilmington crash is nearing closure thanks to a record settlement between the Justice Department and Toyota, a company the family believes was responsible for the I-93 wreck.

According to a report on CBS Boston, Maria Cafua's car suddenly shot across three lanes of traffic on I-93 in Wilmington about 10 years ago. The resulting crash put her into a coma for eight months, and eventually killed her.

With a $1.2 billion settlement reached by Toyota Motor Corp. and the Justice Department, Cafua's son, David, said his suspicions that a faulty Toyota Camry was responsible for the crash have been confirmed.

“All these years later they’re finally agreeing to the government that something was wrong,” he said, according to CBS Boston
