Jackson businessman Stuart Irby has settled a $60 million lawsuit filed by the estates of two doctors killed in a 2009 head-on collision for an undisclosed amount.

The families previously dismissed their case against Irby’s wife, who is serving an 18-year prison sentence for causing the 2009 crash in Jackson.

Richard Montague, an attorney for Stuart Irby, told the Clarion-Ledger Monday that he couldn’t comment about the confidential settlement.
