A settlement has been reached in the case of a young girl suing her parents after surviving a fatal car crash in Co Longford.
Twelve-year-old Faith Carberry was critically injured when the car driven by her drunk, uninsured mother Mary Carberry hit an embankment in Edgeworthstown in July 2007 claiming the lives of her sister Ava and a friend - nine-year-old Michaela Logan.
Suing through her grandfather, she took a High Court action for damages against her parents and the Motor Insurers Bureau of Ireland.
Her father admitted owning the BMW but denies giving his former partner consent to drive the car.
An undisclosed settlement has been reached on the issue of liability and damages will be assessed at a hearing in three weeks time.
