OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- The city of Omaha has agreed to pay $185,000 to a man who was injured when his vehicle was struck by a city worker who ran a red light.

The City Council unanimously approved the settlement Tuesday with Edward Hasenjager.

His lawsuit says he was headed west one day in June 2015 when his vehicle was hit by a southbound vehicle that hadn't halted for a red light.
