The parents of a young woman who died in a car crash near Gillette Stadium after drinking in the parking lot during a concert have settled the wrongful death lawsuit they brought against the Kraft Group, which owns the stadium and the New England Patriots. Lawyers for the Kraft Group and Stephen and MaryAnn Davis reached a settlement just before jury selection was scheduled to start Monday in Norfolk Superior Court. Details were not disclosed. Attorneys didn’t comment afterward. The lawsuit alleged the Kraft Group was negligent and had a duty to prevent underage drinking outside the 2008 country music concert. Debra Davis, 20, and her friends paid to get in the lot, but did not have concert tickets.
