Verdict Reached in Jet Crash Trial
Two families whose relatives were killed when a military jet crashed into a University City neighborhood in 2008 have been awarded almost $18 million for their loss. The amount awarded is about one third of the $56 million that the lawyers had hoped to recover for the family.
Young Mi Yoon, 36, Grace, 15 months, Rachel, 2 months and Suk Im Kim, 60, were killed on December 8, 2008 after one of the engines on a FA-18-D Hornet died as a student Marine pilot headed to MCAS Miramar.
