SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego has agreed to pay $18.5 million to a boy who lost a leg when he was struck by a city trash truck.
An attorney for the city tells U-T San Diego that a tentative lawsuit settlement was reached Monday. It still needs City Council and court approval.
Luke Acuna was 9 when his left leg was amputated after a November 2011 accident. Authorities say he was skateboarding through an intersection when he was hit by a trash truck that was making a three-point turn.
The family claimed the turn was dangerous and sued the city for negligence. According to court documents, the city contended the turn was legal and the boy failed to look before crossing the road.
