The parents of a teenager who was killed when she was run over by emergency vehicles after an Asiana Airlines crash landing at the San Francisco airport have settled their lawsuit against the city.

The parents of a teenager who was killed when she was run over by emergency vehicles after an Asiana Airlines crash landing at the San Francisco airport have settled their lawsuit against the city.

The parent’s lawyers formally dismissed the lawsuit Friday in federal court, saying they had reached a confidential settlement.

San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera said the lawsuit was meritless and firefighters acted heroically in rescuing passengers from the Boeing 777 that was engulfed in flames on July 6, 2013.

Three people were killed and many others injured when the Asiana flight clipped a sea wall and burst into flames while landing. Two rescue vehicles accidentally ran over 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan of China, who was covered in firefighting foam while she lay injured on the runway.
