BOE to consider $28K settlement for pedestrian hit in police crash

Baltimore’s Board of Estimates is scheduled to consider a $28,000 settlement with a woman who alleged she was struck during a police-involved crash.

Donna Brown claims she “sustained serious permanent injuries” following a collision near the intersection of North Avenue and Charles Street in June 2013, according to the memo about the settlement in the city spending panel’s agenda.

Officer Ada Lamadrid was driving west on North Avenue with her lights and sirens activated when she drove through a red light at Charles Street and struck a vehicle driving north, according to the memo. The other vehicle struck two pedestrians, including Brown.

The settlement was recommended based on the legal and factual issues of her claim, according to the memo.
