KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Kansas City Council approved a $280,000 settlement with the parents of a 7-year-old boy who died after being struck by a fire truck.
The council approved the settlement Thursday with the parents of Obarimomoya Nkani , who died March 2 after the truck struck the boy as he was walking home from school.
The city attorney's office says the settlement is not an admission of guilt. A police investigation concluded that Nkani likely ran into the path of the truck, which was on its way to a fire call.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/pk6xBH) that the boy's parents alleged that the fire truck driver didn't use the highest level of care while driving.
