$45M Settlement Proposed for Teen Left Paralyzed After Crash During Police Chase in Chicago

The City Council is set to consider a massive $45 million settlement with the family of a 15-year-old boy who was left unable to walk or talk, after a crash during a police chase over a simple traffic stop in 2021.

The City Council Finance Committee on Monday will vote on the proposed settlement with Nathen Jones, who – according to a lawsuit filed in Cook County in 2022 – suffered a traumatic brain injury in the crash, and needs around-the-clock care for the rest of his life.

The city’s insurance policy would pay for $25 million of the settlement, with the city’s taxpayers responsible for the remaining $20 million.
