Women injured in crash involving state trooper settle suit

A Connecticut mother and daughter severely injured when their car was struck by an unmarked state police vehicle driven by a trooper investigators allege was drunk have settled their lawsuit against the bar that served him. Lisa and Madison Conroy sued Black Hog Brewing of Oxford after the crash in Southbury in September.

The Conroys' attorney said Tuesday he agreed to the $225,000 settlement with the bar's insurance company. The Conroys' suit against the state and suspended state police Sgt. John McDonald is pending.  

Prosecutors say the 37-year old McDonald consumed at least eight alcoholic drinks during a retirement party for a colleague before the crash.  He was driving more than 70 mph and ran a stop sign before the accident. 

McDonald, charged with drunken driving and assault with a motor vehicle, is on paid leave.
