ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

UGI has reached a settlement with the father of the youngest victim of last year's deadly gas explosion in Allentown.

The Reading-based gas utility has resolved its case with Steven Vega, the father of 4-month-old Matthew Vega. Terms of the deal aren't being released.

Matthew Vega was one of five people killed in a gas explosion that leveled a row of homes at 13th and Allen streets. Matthew's mother and grandmother were also killed. 

His grandfather is also suing UGI. That case is still playing out.
