A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit against the Ford Motor Company that alleged defects in tires on the Ford Bronco II were a substantial factor in a crash that left a Montana man paralyzed and with cognitive impairment.
The Great Falls Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/JjjxnE ) terms of the settlement with Bryan Mizenko have been sealed.
Last month, a jury in Cascade County voted 11-1 that defects in a Firestone tire were a factor in a 2003 crash. Both Firestone and the used car dealer where Mizenko bought the vehicle settled out of court.
Mizenko argued the accident was one of several caused by tread belt separation on this type of Firestone tire.
Ford argued that Mizenko's tire failed because it was 14 years old and had been damaged.
