— 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.
