LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The state has agreed to pay a Lincoln man $225,000 for injuries and damages he received in 2016 when a Nebraska Game and Parks employee crashed into his car in Lincoln.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that a lawyer for Josephus Pickett says Pickett was left with a traumatic brain and other injuries when Lyle Huston ran his state-owned pickup truck into Pickett's car at a Lincoln intersection.

The crash totaled Pickett's car and damaged another car in an adjacent parking lot.

Police ticketed Huston for failure to yield. He pleaded guilty and was fined $25.
