Pilot Offers Insurance Money

BURLINGTON, IA (AP) - A man facing lawsuits involving a jon boat crash that killed four people and injured six others on the Mississippi River in 2012 has agreed to hand over $300,000 from an insurance policy, but he wants a judge to absolve him of future damages if he does.


An attorney representing 22-year-old Joseph Schier Jr. has proposed the deal in court documents.


Attorneys representing four people killed in the collision and two others injured want the court to hold hearings to determine if Schier has assets that could satisfy judgments if the wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits are successful.


Schier and 23-year-old Douglas Metcalf were shuttling partygoers in boats that collided on May 2012.


Lawsuits claim the men acted negligently causing a collision.
