MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The family of a South Carolina woman killed at the 2011 All Good Music Festival will get about $570,000 from lawsuit settlements a federal judge has approved.

U.S. District Judge Irene Kelley approved agreements Monday that also pay Kim Miller's lawyers $233,000.

Miller's daughter Nicole died and two friends were injured when a pickup crashed into a tent where they were sleeping. All were from Mount Pleasant, S.C.

Survivors Yen Ton and Rosie Doran are also settling several claims.

Keeley called the deals with driver Clay Lewin of Cape Charles, Va., and other parties "fair and reasonable."

Miller also settled claims against James Tobin Productions.

Ton and Doran get $100,000 apiece under the Lewin deal and $150,000 from Tobin's insurers.

Other settlements await court approval.
