Dollars unveiled in settlement between school district and families in 2018 car - bus tragedy

A settlement between the Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation and family of the children involved in a Fulton County car – bus collision in 2018 is over $3 million.


The settlement, signed in 2019, shows Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation paid $2.575 million to the parents of Alivia Stahl and her twin half brothers, Xzavier and Mason Ingle. 


Approximately $200, 000 went to Stahl’s father.  The mother of the children, Brittany Ingle, and her husband, Shane, received over $1.1 million.  Over $1.2 million went into an estate in the children’s names.


The settlement also provided $900, 000 to the family of Maverick Lowe.  Maverick was seriously injured in the crash.


The National Transportation Safety Board reported in 2020 that the school district was partially to blame.  The report found inadequate safety assessment of school bus routes with multiple stops that required children to cross high-speed roads.


Alyssa Shepherd received four years in prison as the truck driver in the incident.  Recently, it was announced she could be released as early as Dec. 20 due to Indiana’s jail time credits and her completion of a Bible study course while in prison.
