The Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority will pay a Mt. Washington man $150,000 to settle a lawsuit that claims the authority and two other agencies were responsible for icy road conditions in 2010 that caused him to crash his vehicle in the West End.

Richard Conlon, 58, suffered leg and pelvic fractures and injuries to his head and spine on Dec. 19, 2010, when his vehicle skidded on an icy patch on Noblestown Road near Weaver Street and went over a hillside, according to the suit.

The suit contends that PWSA, Pittsburgh and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation were negligent in permitting standing water to collect and freeze on the road. PWSA directors on Wednesday voted to settle the lawsuit, which is still pending against Pittsburgh and PennDOT.
