$4 million settlement after street-sweeper death in Bellevue

SEATTLE (AP) — The family of a man who was crushed to death by a street sweeper in Bellevue has agreed to settle a wrongful death case for $4 million. Alexandru Culai was walking near a construction zone when the machine backed up and ran him over in February 2018. Culai’s family sued the company that operated the street sweeper _ Nelson and Sons Construction, doing business as Team Nelson _  in King County Superior Court. Kevin Coluccio, an attorney for two of Culai’s three sons, says the settlement still needs court approval. The company did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
