Santa Clara County has agreed to pay $2.3 million to the parents of one of the bicyclists killed when a former sheriff’s deputy drove his patrol car into a group of cyclists in Cupertino. The lawsuit was filed against the county and the deputy. Former Deputy James “Tommy” Council said he fell asleep at the wheel on March 9, 2008, crossing a double yellow line and hitting the cyclist. The settlement was expected as county officials accepted responsibility immediately following the accident. See the full story here.
