City of Yonkers settles lawsuit in 2015 fatal police chase case for $1.5 million

The City of Yonkers will pay $1.5 million to the estate of a woman who was killed during a high-peed police chase in 2015.
The City Council approved the settlement this week.
Police were chasing a stolen van on Warburton Avenue when the teenage driver crossed the double yellow line and drove the wrong way before colliding head on with a car driven by 46-year-old Sharlene Stinson.
Stinson was pronounced dead at the scene. The teenager driver died a week later, while a second teenager survived.
The family filed a lawsuit in 2016 claiming the police had a reckless disregard for public safety.
