Families of victims in deadly Jose Fernandez crash settle lawsuit against his estate

The families of the two men who were killed in addition to MLB pitcher Jose Fernandez in a 2016 boat crash have settled their lawsuit against his estate, according to the Associated Press.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission found that Fernandez was operating the boat when it crashed off Miami Beach on September 25, 2016. A toxicology report released by the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department a month later showed that Fernandez had cocaine in his system, and had a blood alcohol level of almost twice the legal limit at the time of his death, when he was said to be operating the boat at 65 miles per hour.
