On April 8, 2008 Robert B. Smith IV was stopped with traffic in the city of Tacoma. Guard Mitchell Andreasen, who was driving a Pierce County Jail transport vehicle carrying prisoners, stated his foot slipped off the brake and hit the accelerator. He collided with Smith’s 2001 Toyota Tundra pick-up, causing visible damage.
Smith’s claim sought monetary relief for the damages to his vehicle. Pierce County settled the claim on June 23, 2008.
