ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) - A former Mississippi State University cheerleader has settled her wrongful injury case with ESPN for an undisclosed sum.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/29IHHJu) Michaela Mills was dressed as the MSU mascot Bully during the 2013 Egg Bowl when she was run over by a motorized television camera cart. The lawsuit alleged the collision caused a compound fracture to her lower left leg. Mills underwent surgery to insert a rod and pins in her leg, and she continues to experience pain.

She sued both ESPN and Mississippi State University in May 2015, asking for more than $75,000 in actual and compensatory damages. Since MSU employees were not in control of the television cart, a federal judge released the school from the lawsuit in February.

The two sides reached an agreement in late June.
