As UKTN 2 reported, video evidence shows that the patrol car’s lights were activated when they passed through that light. She had just started a new job and was driving home.

There is also a settlement of just over $9 million involving Patrick Prince who served 25 years in prison for a murder he did not commit.

There are also two settlements near or over $900,000, one involving an employee of the city’s water department. The other is the victim of a police shooting after fleeing a traffic jam in 2017.
