WRONGFUL DEATH the family of a young girl who was killed when a bus rear-ended their car settled its suit against the bus operator, First Transit Inc., of Cincinnati, and the driver, Clifford Wayne Kidd, for $10 million on April 3. Jennifer Marie Rodriguez, 9, was seated next to her brother and sister in the back seat of her father’s SUV on a Houston highway. When traffic slowed, Kidd, driving an MTA bus, slammed into the rear of the Rodriguezes’ car, setting it ablaze. The father and two of the children escaped, but Jennifer burned to death.
