STAMFORD -

A trucking company has reached a settlement with the family of a Stamford woman killed in a 2016 crash.

The driver of a semi-tractor trailer, Jeffrey Bodnar, is accused of running a red light and slamming into 38-year-old Cristina Vomoca's car. Vomoca was killed.

The trucking company agreed to pay $18.75 million for the driver's role in Vomoca's death.

Bodnar is currently facing charges of manslaughter and first-degree assault.

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story misidentified the trucking company that employed Jeffrey Bodnar as Transervice Lease Corp.  He was employed by Food Haulers Inc.
