The payment goes to Dean Stevens, who sued the city and Officer Debra Maxson after she drove through a red light with her emergency lights on and struck him at the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Route 161. City Attorney Rick Pfeiffer says it started with a woman waving at Maxson to alert the officer about a hit-and-run motorist.</span></p> Tue, 13 May 2014 11:31:29 +0000 Jim Letizia 55910 at Council Approves Payments Out Of Two Legal Cases Crash Kills Boy, Injures Sister And Father <P>A Columbus man will go before a judge today, facing charges in a crash that killed a five-year-old boy.
