TACOMA -- Pierce County has agreed to pay $1.65 million to settle a wrongful-death lawsuit brought by the family of a Fircrest man who was hit by a sheriff's patrol car.
The lawsuit contended the deputy was negligent and reckless in September 2011 when he struck 61-year-old Dale Neel as he was riding a moped home from his job as a bank teller.
The deputy was responding to a call, and the car's lights and siren were activated.
Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer told The News Tribune that the collision was a tragic accident.
