St. Joseph County Settles $5 Million Lawsuit with Family in Deadly Pond Crash

St. Joseph County Settles $5 Million Lawsuit with Family in Deadly Pond Crash

The family of two young children, who died in a car accident after their car slid into a pond in 2019, received a $5 million settlement.

The settlement for the Kleven family was approved by the St. Joseph County Commissioners. They filed a federal complaint, alleging negligence in the handling of the situation by county dispatchers.

Brook Kleven’s car slid off an icy road on Mishawaka’s University Drive and into a retention pond. Three 911 dispatchers resigned after the crash.

The family is still suing Mishawaka and the owner of the shopping complex where the tension pond is located.
