ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) - The city of Royal Oak has agreed to pay $300,000 to settle a lawsuit from a woman who broke her hip and wrist during a crash while biking along an uneven sidewalk.

The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak reports (https://bit.ly/1pBRwzH ) that city commission members signed off on the settlement Monday night.

The crash happened in May 2012 when 49-year-old Judith Angeloff of Royal Oak was riding her bike beneath a Grand Trunk Railroad viaduct. Angeloff said the accident aggravated an earlier back problem and her injuries caused pain, suffering and lost wages.

The uneven sidewalk that was cited as the cause of the accident has since been repaired.
