Civil Plaintiff

City of San Diego Will Pay $4.8 Million After Collision Left One Dead, One Injured

San Diego is set to pay $4.8 million in a death and injury lawsuit after two pedestrians were hit by a car outside Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns in 2015.

On Sept. 15, 2015 Jaime Leonen died and Jorge Lopez suffered severe spinal injuries and is permanently disabled after they were hit by a car on Health Center Drive in Kearny Mesa.

City Council Tuesday, July 25, unanimously approved the settlement in open session, just two months after the civil trial closed out with a hung jury.
