STRATFORD - Stratford officials have approved a multimillion-dollar settlement in a case involving a teen who was killed by a town public works truck.

Carlos Prada was struck on East Main Street near Wilcoxson Avenue in 2008.

After a lengthy investigation, Stratford officials conceded that the driver of the truck, Robert Maloy, was not properly licensed to do so.

The family's attorney Donald Papscy also says deposition testimony from town leaders revealed that the truck had 21 violations, including faulty brakes and bad windshield wipers. It was raining the morning Maloy struck Prada.

The family's attorney says he'll contribute part of his portion of the settlement to a scholarship fund in Carlos Prada's name.
