The parents of a kindergartner fatally hit by a truck agreed to a $2.75 million settlement. In 2009, Zachary Cruz, 5, had just exited a school bus and was being escorted across the street to his after-school program at the University of California-Berkley when he was struck and killed by a truck driven by John Martin and owned by Ferguson Welding. Zachary's parents sued Martin, Ferguson Welding, Berkeley Unified School District, the university, the school bus driver and Zachary's escort. The bulk of the settlement, $1.8 million, was paid by Ferguson Welding, Martin and their insurance carrier. The other defendants contributed the rest, which included $225,000 for a scholarship fund in Zachary's name and $50,000 for a technology center at his elementary school.
