EVANS, N.Y. (WIVB) — Although more than a year and a half have passed, the daughters of a man killed in a hit-and-run have settled a civil suit in their dad’s case.
Although the owner of the vehicle that fatally struck Barry Moss never faced criminal charges, family members of Moss say Gabriele Ballowe agreed in New York Sate Supreme Court to a monetary settlement to be paid to Moss’ three daughters.
“I’m relieved, Cassandra Moss, one of Moss’ three adult daughters, said. “It’s a great step for us to try to move on.”
Ballowe lost her driver’s license following the December 2013 accident on Route 5 in the Town of Evans. The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles decided to revoke her license for not reporting her vehicle as being involved in a fatal crash.
As recently as April, police were encouraging the public to do everything but let the case grow cold. A reward of up to $11,000 incentivized anybody with information to help provide evidence that would lead to criminal charges.
In June, Moss’ family planted a tree in his memory. Family members say the settlement amount will remain undisclosed.
