Ft. Lauderdale to Pay $180,000 in Car Accident Lawsuit

Comments Off

The city of Fort Lauderdale agreed unanimously last week to pay $180,000 to the families of two victims of a 2000 car accident. Teens in a stolen car ran a stop sign while fleeing police. The car crashed into a Kia, killing a 12-year-old passenger. The money will be split between the families of the boy who was killed and the driver of the Kia. The city maintains that the police were not engaged in a high-speed chase but settled the case as “the better part of valor.”
