Family Of Massachusetts Youth Killed In Blast Settles Suit Against Company

 Wednesday, July 10, 2019


The family of a teenager killed during a 2018 gas explosion that injured a dozen others and destroyed scores of homes in three Boston suburbs settled its lawsuit against Columbia Gas of Massachusetts on Tuesday.

Leonel Rondon died when his car was crushed by a chimney that fell after the blast in a pipeline owned by Columbia Gas, a unit of NiSource Inc.

“He was only 18 years old and full of life,” Doug Sheff, an attorney who represents the Rondon family, said in a joint statement with Columbia Gas announcing the settlement.
