KINGWOOD, W.Va. (WCSC/AP) - A New Hampshire company has settled two lawsuits stemming from a fatal accident at a music festival in West Virginia.

U.S. District Judge Irene Keeley approved National Event Services' settlements with Yen Ton and Elizabeth Rose Doran last week. Court documents don't list the settlement amounts.

Ton and Doran were injured during the 2011 All Good Music Festival when an out-of-control GMC pickup truck went rolling down a hill and crashed into a tent where they were sleeping, according to the Preston County Sheriff's Office.

Their friend, Nicole Miller, was killed. All three were from Mount Pleasant and graduates of Wando High School.

National Event Services was a subcontractor for the festival.

Two other defendants, M&M Parking Inc., of Pennsylvania, and Event Staffing Inc., of Virginia, were dismissed from the cases.

Ton and Doran reached settlements with several other defendants last year.

About 30,000 people attended the weekend concert to listen to music and camp in the Allegheny Mountains.
