City settles death case for $275,000

The city of Chesapeake will pay $275,000 to resolve a family’s claim for a man killed by an animal control truck.

According to witnesses, the animal control vehicle sped through an intersection as the light turned yellow, killing 65-year-old Norfolk resident, Elwood Couther.
