The parents of a 31-year-old Newbury Park woman who died when her motorcycle rear-ended a big rig on the northbound San Diego (405) Freeway in 2014 settled the lawsuit they brought against the truck’s owner.
Attorneys for David Naccarato and Patricia Dry filed court papers on March 27 in Los Angeles Superior Court stating that the case was resolved. No terms were divulged.
The plaintiffs were the father and mother of Fallon Denise Nacarrato. They filed their case in January 2016 against AD Express Inc. In their court papers, defense attorneys denied any wrongdoing on the part of the company.
Fallon Naccarato’s motorcycle struck the back of the ADA Express truck about 3:45 a.m. Jan. 22, 2014, just north of Getty Center Drive, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Jennifer Cassidy.
The suit stated that Mitchell slowed to a speed below that of the flow of traffic and did not display any warning signals or lights, causing Fallon Naccarato’s motorcycle to crash into the rear end of the truck.
“Decedent was fatally injured and untimely killed,” the suit stated.
The woman’s parents suffered a loss of financial support she would have contributed to the family as well as other gifts and benefits, according to the lawsuit.
