A nearly $6 million settlement has been agreed to by the families of eight people killed and 12 injured in a 2010 desert off-road race, according to media reports Wednesday.

The $5.8 million settlement was struck Tuesday in a mediation session between federal lawyers and attorneys for the victims of the crash that occurred in the California 200 race in the Mojave Desert.

The agreement must still be approved by both a judge and the U.S. Department of Justice.

Per the agreement, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management will pay $4.825 million, while Mojave Desert Racing Inc. and Mojave Desert Racing Productions Inc., which promoted and ran the race, will pay $1 million, attorneys said.
