TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The city of Tulsa has settled a lawsuit for $350,000 with victims of a wreck that happened more than two years ago when a police officer pulled into traffic and collided with a motorcycle.

The Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1OgKhDJ ) reports that the case was settled in February and is up for City Council approval next week.

Court document say 48-year-olds Scott and Bobbie Keeter were riding a motorcycle in south Tulsa in November 2013 when Officer Tyrone Jenkins crossed their path while responding to an emergency call.

Senior assistant city attorney Michelle McGrew says both of the Keeters have permanent, partial disabilities, and they’re not able to work. Their medical costs have exceeded $500,000.

McGrew says the settlement will give each $175,000, which is the statutory limit.
