Columbus City Council last night approved a 50 thousand dollar payment to a motorcyclist struck and severely injured by a Columbus police officer in August of 2008. 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.
