The city of Indianapolis will pay $2.3 million to two people seriously injured when their motorcycle was struck by a police cruiser driven by an officer allegedly driving drunk.

Fox59 reported Thursday that the settlement entered in Marion Superior Court this week will pay $1.35 million to Kurt Weekly and $975,000 to Mary Mills. The two married after the August 2010 crash by Officer David Bisard that also killed motorcyclist Eric Wells.

The city settled separately in June for $1.55 million with Wells' family.

Bisard faces charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, reckless homicide and criminal recklessness. He allegedly had a blood-alcohol level of 0.19 percent at the time, but the blood draw was improper under state law, so it might not be allowed as evidence.

  • A Trial?
    Do you think there will EVER be a criminal trial in this case? I think the fix is in. Taxpayers will pay out millions from the city coffers, but Bisard will skate.
