DENVER (AP) - The Denver City Council has approved two settlements totaling $235,000 stemming from separate crashes that injured a cyclist and a motorist.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1ATwqAv ) councilmembers decided Monday to pay $88,000 to cyclist Ronald Woods, of Littleton, and his attorneys, as well as $17,000 to a health care provider and an insurer. Woods suffered broken bones in his face, requiring surgery, after he was thrown from his bicycle in 2009 on the South Platte Trail after his front tire became stuck in a separation between the pavement.

In the other case, Denver driver Timothy Vechazone’s vehicle was broadsided by a Department of Public Works vehicle in 2010.

The city agreed to pay $130,000 to Vechazone and his attorneys to settle the case. Vechazone said he suffered “substantial” injuries.
