Pittsburgh City Council on Tuesday introduced legislation that would pay a West View woman $145,000 to settle a lawsuit seeking damages for serious injuries she suffered two years ago in a motorcycle crash with a city police cruiser.

Tara Clanagan, 34, claimed in the suit that officer Dustin Rummel ran through a red traffic signal at Lincoln Avenue near Shetland Street in Larimer on July 8, 2012, while responding to an emergency call. Rummel failed to activate his lights and siren before entering the intersection, according to the suit.

Clanagan was thrown from the back of a motorcycle driven by her husband, Roy, and suffered a broken shoulder, knee, pelvis and left wrist, the suit says.
