Oakland To Pay $630,000 After Police Crash

The city of Oakland will pay $630,000 to a man who suffered a broken back in a crash with a police car, but city officials aren’t admitting liability in the case.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports the city agreed to make the payment to cover the medical costs for Daniel Pena-Marquez after the August 2006 crash.
