Pierce County settles death lawsuit for $1.65M

The Associated Press

TACOMA — Pierce County has agreed to pay $1.65 million to settle a wrongful-death lawsuit brought by the family of a Fircrest man who was hit by a sheriff’s patrol car.

The lawsuit contended the deputy was negligent and reckless in September 2011 when he struck 61-year-old Dale Neel as he was riding a moped home from his job as a bank teller.

The deputy was responding to a call, and the car’s lights and siren were activated.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer told The News Tribune the collision was a tragic accident.
