RALEIGH -- Raleigh authorities say a woman who sued the city over a head-on crash with a recycling truck has agreed to a $1.1 million settlement. The News & Observer of Raleigh reports Wednesday the agreement signed earlier this month ends Nirali Manish Dubal's lawsuit against the city and the truck driver. Dubal suffered a fractured ankle, arm and spine in the January 2007 crash with a city truck. The suit accused the driver of failing to yield the right of way to Dubal and not properly signaling before making a left turn. Dubal's attorney, Carlos Mahoney, says Dubal has been permanently disabled because of her injuries. City officials say the city's liability insurance carrier will pay all but $100,000 of the settlement. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
