Photo Credit: Contributed The wife of a Fairfield County novelist who died in a July 2017 auto crash has received a $1.5 million settlement after suing the driver who crossed the center lane hitting his vehicle head-on. The settlement was reached earlier this week in Superior Court on behalf of Jill Kwochka of Shelton, for the death of her husband, John Kwochka, said Kwochka's attorney, Tom Ganim of Bridgeport. "This loss was a true tragedy to all who knew and loved John Kwochka," said Ganim. "He was, by all accounts, an exceptional man. His family is devastated. Noting will bring John back but we hope this brings some justice for the pain the family is enduring." Amanda Cashmore, 22, of Cheshire, has been charged with negligent homicide for the crash that killed Kwochka, according to state police. Police reports say Cashmore was driving eastbound on Cheshire Road, also known as Route 42, in Bethany in New Haven County, when her Ford truck crossed into oncoming westbound traffic crashing into Kwochka's Chevy Impala. Kwochka, 43, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Cashmore received minor injuries.
