A settlement has been reached in a case involving a man that claimed to have been seriously injured in an automobile accident with a McKinney police officer, according to the Dallas Morning News. The case stems from an accident involving Illinois resident, Brock Bailey, in December 2013 and a police officer responding to a call. Bailey’s lawsuit claims the officer was going up to 110 mph without stem or overhead lights, and accused the McKinney Police Department of destroying the dash camera that would have proved what happened. As a result of the collision, Bailey suffered injuries that included crushed hips, broken ribs, and a punctured lung. Because of the financial limitations of Texas’ tort law, Bailey and his attorney decided to avoid a trail, and settled with an insurance provider for $180,000.
