Abigail Fleming handled a jury trial, involving an accident between a City police car and a private vehicle at a red light. The police vehicle was on an emergency call and ran the red-light. The Defendant’s vehicle had a green-light, but had a statutory duty to yield to the police vehicle. The jury verdict apportioned the liability 75% - 25%, between the police officer and Defendant driver. The jury allotted a portion of fault on the police vehicle for not waiting a safe interval of time before entering the intersection against the light, and only a portion of the fault on Defendant driver.
