After nearly two years since Michael Heaston’s death, his family will receive $1.4 million from the city of Columbia, MO as a settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit. On July 12, 2010, a city bus made a left-hand turn, without noticing Mr. Heaston on his motorcycle. After unsuccessfully trying to avoid the collision, Mr. Heaston was struck by the left side of the bus and passed away the next day. For more information on this case, please refer to this article by the Columbia Daily Tribune. You can also find the complete settlement information, here.
