LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock City Council will vote this week on a $95,000 settlement with Steve Martinez after a 2017 crash involving a City of Lubbock vehicle.

The crash happened in the 400 block of North MLK on Sept. 28, 2017. The crash caused significant damage to both vehicles.

The settlement agreement says Martinez was injured and had to undergo extensive medical treatment. It says he also suffered lost wages. He says the driver of the city vehicle was negligent in operating the vehicle.

Instead of going to trial, the agreement says if the city agrees to pay $95,000, they will forever discharge the city from the crash.

The settlement was issued on April 24, 2018. The City Council will vote Thursday on the settlement.

The City of Lubbock vehicle belonged to the Parks and Recreation Department.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
