The man who was caught in a steam pipe blast in New York City three years ago has settled his lawsuit against Consolidated Edison.

Gregory McCullough and the company said in court papers Wednesday that they had reached a settlement. The papers did not specify the amount.

McCullough and a female passenger in his tow truck were engulfed in a scalding geyser when a Con Edison pipe burst beneath a street near Grand Central Terminal on July 18, 2007.

He suffered third-degree burns to more than 80 percent of his body. He spent months in a hospital.

McCullough, his lawyer and Con Ed declined to comment.

McCullough was one of several people badly injured in the blast, which also caused a New Jersey woman to have a fatal heart attack.
