The City of Chicago is set to approve or deny a $6.25 million settlement with one of Dwight Washington’s victims today, reports ABC Chicago. If approved, it would be the first, and quite possibly, the largest of multiple settlements arising from a single drunken driving incident that occurred back in 2011.
The victim in this case, Richard Chang, was pinned under the city-owned Ford F-150 and suffered brain damage. He had to relearn how to walk and talk. Because of residual damage, he is unable to continue his previous career as a computer scientist. According to the Sun-Times, lawsuits are still pending for three other victims, including a 26-year-old nanny that pushed the 20-month-old girl that she was watching out of the way before becoming seriously injured herself.
