All Good Driver Seeks Settlement

The driver of a vehicle that struck a tent of sleeping women, killing one, at the All Good Festival in West Virginia last summer is seeking to settle three wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits.

Clay Lewin’s insurance company will pay the family of the woman who died $300,000 under the proposed settlement, with the other two survivors of the accident receiving $100,000 each, according to court documents.

During the incident, Lewin lost control of his truck and careened 30 or 40 feet down a hillside at the festival, striking two other vehicles before plowing into the tent.

He claimed in court that parking and security staffers told him to park “in close proximity” to tents on a steep, grassy slope. However, when he tried to leave the festival, no attendants were there to help him drive toward the road and he lost control of the truck.

Lewin was named alongside the promoter of the fest, Walther Productions, and several other companies in a number of lawsuits filed by families of the victims. All companies have denied responsibility for the incident and many have filed counterclaims against one another.
