HILTON HEAD, S.C. (AP) -- The wife of a Parris Island Marine killed when his motorcycle collided with another Marine's pickup truck will receive a $25,000 settlement following the fatal crash. 

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports (bit.ly/1eNgVvq) court records show the insurance settlement over the death of 23-year-old Cameron Branum in December 2012. Branum and his wife Timi were expecting their third child at the time. 

Branum was a company clerk at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. 

South Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper Hannah Wimberly said 24-year-old Marine Tyshan Bentley was charged with driving on the wrong side of the road after the crash. Bentley was driving along a Beaufort County road when he ran off the shoulder, overcorrected and veered into oncoming traffic. 

Bentley also is stationed at Parris Island.
