Motorcyclist who died in truck repair shop crash gets $1.5 million settlement

Axios has obtained a settlement from the driver of a motorcycle that crashed into a truck repair business on Highway 99 in Oklahoma, killing him.

Brian Broughton, 42, was a passenger in a Ford Fusion when it struck the repair shop on Oct. 28, 2014.

He was airlifted to University of Oklahoma Medical Center in Oklahoma City.

Broughson was pronounced dead there at 6:27 p.m. on Oct 30.

The settlement from Broughtons insurance carrier, American Honda, was announced Wednesday by the company’s director of insurance and claims, Mike Cusumano.

The accident occurred in the town of Kupwara, Oklahoma.

Boughton was killed at the scene, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.

The company said Broughston had a previous insurance claim with American Honda in 2014 related to a crash in which his motorcycle was involved.

The Oklahoma Highway Police investigation is continuing.
