City settles with woman hurt in crash with front-loader
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita officials have agreed to pay $125,000 to settle a lawsuit with an 81-year-old woman who was hurt when a city worker ran into her family’s car with a front-loader truck.
The Wichita Eagle reports that the City Council approved the lump sum payment to Francill Wilson on Tuesday. She sued in 2017 after the city denied a claim she made for damages related to the 2015 crash. The lawsuit says the city employee ignored a stop sign while turning right. The truck then hit the passenger side of a car, where Wilson was seated.
The lawsuit says the crash totaled the car and hurt Wilson, who suffered head, back, spine and shoulder injuries, dizziness, swelling and bruising. The driver was cited for inattentive driving and failure to yield.
