BILLERICA -- Lynnway Auto Auction, where five people were fatally struck last May, has agreed to pay $200,000 in penalties, correct hazards and implement significant safety measures, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Last year, the department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited Lynnway for 16 violations following the incident in which an SUV fatally struck five people during an auto auction.

As part of the settlement, Lynnway will designate and mark non-driving locations, walkways and crosswalks; install barriers in the auto-auction area; establish and enforce speed limits and a safe-driving program; periodically evaluate employees' driving capabilities and licenses; provide employee training; and review all vehicle accidents or near-accidents.
