Raleigh pays $1.1M to woman injured by recycling truck
Posted December 30, 2008
Raleigh, N.C. — The city has reached a $1.1 million settlement with a woman injured last year in a wreck involving a city recycling truck.
Nirali Manish Dubal was driving on Stonehenge Drive on Jan. 3, 2007, when her car collided head-on with a recycling truck. She suffered several broken bones.
Dubal sued the city and the truck driver in September 2007, claiming the driver didn't signal a left turn and didn't yield to her.
The city's liability insurance will cover $100,000 of the settlement, and the rest will be paid out of a reserve fund the city uses to cover liability claims, officials said.
