CONCORD (AP) — An attorney says a family has settled their lawsuit after a New Hampshire woman was killed in 2013 when a tractor-trailer tire slammed into her sport utility vehicle on Interstate 93 in Hooksett.

40-year-old Kerry Anderson-Baker, of Concord, died in the accident when a wheel dislodged from the trailer, ricocheted off a police cruiser and slammed into her windshield.

Authorities said neither the truck nor the trailer should have been on the road. An inspection revealed the brakes on each were worn.

Anderson-Baker's family sued last year claiming negligence.

The family's lawyer, Ben Zimmermann, tells the Concord Monitor that a settlement has been reached but he cannot discuss the details.

An order issued Wednesday in Merrimack County Superior Court was sealed because it involves a minor.
