Settlement approved in Huizar car crash

Posted on April 18, 2014

Settlement approved in Huizar car crashA $185,000 settlement was unanimously approved by the Los Angeles City Council Wednesday. The settlement went to a private investigator whose car was rear-ended by a vehicle driven by Councilman Joe Huizar.

An attorney for David Ceja, the man who was rear-ended, said a 2008 Toyota Highlander driven by Huizar struck his client’s 2002 Saturn L200. The accident happened around 6:40 p.m. on Oct. 25, 2012 at First and Boyle streets.

The Saturn L200 was struck very hard and declared a total loss, said attorney Humberto Guizar.

Ceja, who was 48-years-old at the time of the incident, was working for the city as a private investigator.

“While this was the type of unfortunate accident that could have happened to anybody, I take full responsibility for my part in this matter,” said Huizar in statement released Wednesday.

“I wasn’t personally involved in the final settlement agreement, which was mutually agreed upon by the city attorney’s office and the plaintiff’s attorney,” he said at the city council meeting.
