The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday approved the largest personal injury settlement it has ever paid--$19 million to the family of a woman permanently disabled after a city maintenance truck slammed into several cars on the Hollywood Freeway. Carol Adkins, a 44-year-old nursing instructor, remains in a "post comative" condition, fed intravenously and able to communicate only by blinking. Doctors believe she has some limited awareness. Her medical bills are $30,000 a month.
