As we reported in a recent blog post, the Dallas City Council was set to decide whether to agree to a settlement in the wrongful death lawsuit brought by the family of car accident victim Annie Reyes.
On Wednesday, the Dallas City Council agreed to a lawsuit settlement in the amount of $245,000. This Texas wrongful death lawsuit has been ongoing for approximately two years.
Reyes was killed when a car thief crashed into her vehicle while attempting to flee in a “bait car” being used as part of a police sting operation.
Michael Reyes, the grandson of victim Annie Reyes, hopes that the changes to the bait car program, which were put into place after Reyes’ death, will save lives in the future.
“It’s bad that my grandma had to be killed to show a better system needs to take place,” Reyes was quoted as saying to CBS 11.
