The family of Kevin Black has received a settlement from a wrongful death lawsuit for $1.5 million. Black was killed in February 2009 while bicycling down 24th Ave. NW in Ballard. The van that struck him was making a U-turn and swerved into the bicycle lane where Black was riding. The van’s owner, Ambient Control Co., agreed to pay the settlement.
