Settlement Reached in Case of Woman Struck by Durham Cruiser

Posted May 11, 2007 11:25 a.m. EDT

— A pedestrian hit by a Durham police officer will get $375,000 from the city.

Linda Jones filed a lawsuit after she was hit by Officer Joseph Kelly more than six years ago. The case bounced back and forth between the courts.

The settlement with the city comes just a week after the appeals court ruled Jones can sue because a video of the accident from the officer's cruiser was lost.
