CHARLESTON, S.C. — The lawyer for a woman who was rear-ended by a South Carolina state senator who was later charged with driving under the influence says she has settled her lawsuit against the legislator.
Attorney Matt Yelverton said Monday he can’t give details about the settlement with state Sen. Paul Campbell because of a confidentiality agreement.
But Yelverton told media outlets that his client, 21-year-old Michaela Caddin, was happy with the terms.
Campbell’s vehicle hit Yelverton’s car from behind on Interstate 26 in Charleston on Nov. 4. Yelverton told troopers that Campbell was driving and switched places with his wife after the crash.
The Goose Creek Republican is awaiting trial on charges of DUI and giving false information to police, which troopers said stemmed from switching seats and saying he wasn’t driving.
