D.M. bus agency reaches $350K settlement

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority's board has decided to pay $350,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a blind man who was struck by a bus more than three years ago. 

A trial had been scheduled for later this year.  Police say Roger Christenson had the right of way when the bus hit him as it turned on March 26, 2008.

Christenson recovered after being hospitalized. 

Officials say the bus driver had eight other on-the-job accidents in about seven years.
