Haeyon Miller, who was 29 at the time, was waiting at a red light in her car in September 2011 when a 10-ton, 70-foot blue gum eucalyptus tree fell onto the car. A city crane had to be called out to lift the tree from the car.
Miller, who trained at the Julliard School, was pronounced dead at the scene, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Her parents, who are divorced, filed separate wrongful death lawsuits. City Attorney Aaron Harp confirmed Tuesday each will receive $550,000 -- with $500,000 of the $1.1 million total to be paid by the city, $550,000 to be paid by the city's insurance carrier, and $50,000 paid by West Coast Arborist, the city's tree-maintenance contractor, the newspaper reported.
Rahul Ravipudi, the lawyer for Miller's father, Sunyl Chung, said the case shows the city "recognized that this shouldn't have happened, and that they need to be better in maintaining their trees."
The city began removing eucalyptus trees not long after Miller was killed.
