TOPEKA – County commissioners voted unanimously Thursday to settle a lawsuit stemming from a 2007 bicycling accident that killed one person and injured another.
Shawnee County will pay Thomas Heikes $70,000 for injuries he sustained in a collision on the Lake Shawnee trail.
County counselor Rich Eckert said Heikes' medical expenses exceeded $200,000.
Paula Lucas died in the accident.
Eckert recommended commissioners approve the settlement after a Shawnee County judge ruled in favor of Heikes' during legal proceedings.
