The parents of Peyton Trueblood, the TEXAS Musical Drama employee who was killed in a fireworks explosion two years ago, have filed to dismiss their lawsuit that claimed negligence for her death.

Trueblood worked for the musical during the summer of 2015 and was killed on site when a fireworks magazine exploded.

In September 2016, her parents filed a lawsuit against four Texas Panhandle Heritage Foundation employees: Production Manager Blaine Bertrand, Executive Director Kris Miller, Lead Pyrotechnician Dennis Rice and Pyrotechnician Rick Bertram. They claimed negligence, gross negligence and strict liability.

According to court documents, Trueblood's parents agreed to dismiss the claims of negligence against the four Texas Panhandle Heritage Foundation employees as well Ultra-Tec Special Effects and Wald and Company, Inc., which were added to the negligence suit last December.

The motion has yet to be signed by a judge and there was no mention in the court documents of a monetary settlement.
