A resolution accepting $9,577.12 in compromise and settlement of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County's claims against Mr. Troy Lacey for property damage and reimbursement of medical bills.
Whereas, on August 27, 2004, Troy Lacey attempted to make a left turn from Harding Place onto Beacon Drive and in so doing turned into the path of a Metropolitan Fire Department ambulance that was responding to an emergency call with emergency equipment activated; and
Whereas, the driver of the Metro ambulance attempted to avoid the collision but the ambulance was struck on the right side by Troy Lacey's vehicle, causing property damage and personal injury, and requiring medical treatment; and
