Fairly unusal story, stemming from an incident in September 2007.
A Phoenix police officer driving an unmarked car collided with an elderly cyclist, Edward Allen Leigh, who was crossing Third Street in a crosswalk (what I refer to as a “rolling pedestrian”). It was dark and the cyclist was unlit. Cyclists in crosswalks generally get treated like pedestrians under civil lawsuits.
The city settled a lawsuit brought by Leigh for $750,000, who had significant medical bills as a result of the crash. [azcentral]
