'Prison Break' star settles fatal crash lawsuits
Former Prison Break star Lane Garrison has settled two lawsuits filed in relation to a 2006 car crash which left a 17-year-old boy dead.

The actor, who played inmate David "Tweener" Apolskis in the Fox drama, was sentenced to 40 months in prison in November 2007, after crashing his car into a tree, killing Vahagn Setian and injuring two 15-year-old girls.

One lawsuit, filed by the parents of Setian, had demanded damages for wrongful death and gross negligence, while papers filed by one of the injured passengers had sought compensation for medical bills, lost wages and home nursing care.

"All injured parties have been compensated. This should be a complete resolution to any claims by anybody, including the family of the young boy who died as well as the two girls who were injured," a lawyer for Garrison told E! News.

The terms of the settlements have been kept confidential.

Speaking to People, a representative for the California Department Of Corrections confirmed that Garrison would likely be paroled within a "few weeks" but refused to discuss his future plans. It is thought that the 28-year-old is entitled to early release for good behaviour.
