California County Settles Suit for $3 Million

January 4, 2012

San Bernardino County, Calif., has agreed to pay $3 million to settle a lawsuit that blamed dangerous road conditions for a motorcycle crash that left a passenger with head and neck injuries.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reported on the agreement Monday.

Lisa Hermann sued the county after a 2007 crash on the Kelso-Cima Road near the Nevada border.

County spokesman David Wert says recent heavy rains had washed out part of the road, leaving a trench, and the accident occurred before crews were able to make repairs.
