Pierce County, Washington Pays $1,500 for Vehicle Damage

Washington State’s Pierce County paid $1,500 for vehicle damage caused by a county prisoner transport vehicle.

On April 8, 2008 Robert B. Smith IV was stopped with traffic in the city of Tacoma. Guard Mitchell Andreasen, who was driving a Peirce 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.
