ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The family of a 58-year-old man killed in 2013 when a tent collapsed at bar near Busch Stadium has reached a $548,000 settlement, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Alfred Goodman suffered fatal head and neck injuries when wind lifted the tent Kilroy's Sports Bar from its moorings on April 28, 2012 during storms following the Cardinals-Brewers game.

Goodman was the only person killed, but about 100 people were injured, 17 of them going to the hospital.

Goodman’s family has reached a $548,000 settlement with the company that leased and installed the tent.

The wrongful-death lawsuit, filed in St. Louis Circuit Court on behalf of Goodman’s wife, Michelle Goodman, claimed Sun Rental Inc., of Bridgeton, erred in installing and inspecting the tent.

The family  has also sued the bar. Those claims are pending.

Kilroy's closed for several days following his death. They have since installed a new tent.
