OSU student hit by bus settles lawsuit

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The state Court of Claims says an Ohio State University student who was hit by a university-owned bus in a crosswalk has settled a lawsuit against the school for $12,500.

The court said Monday that Connor Fox and OSU settled the suit last week.

Fox claimed he was "lawfully proceeding" in a Columbus crosswalk with a "walk" signal when he was hit by a bus that failed to yield for him while making a left turn on Feb. 10, 2009. He said the injuries led to medical expenses and lost wages.

OSU attorneys had claimed the bus driver, Patricia Harris, had the right-of-way, and that Fox ran out of the crosswalk so she couldn't see him. The attorneys also contended Fox did not appear to be injured at the time.
