Driver In Dinkytown Fatal Hit & Run Ordered To Pay $138K To Victim
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Hennepin County judge has ordered the man sentenced for a fatal hit and run near the University of Minnesota campus to pay more than $138,000 to one of his victims.
Peter Riley, the attorney for victim Sarah Bagley, says Judge Phillip Bush ordered Timothy Bakdash Wednesday to pay money to Bagley for medical expenses and pain and suffering compensation.
Bagley, along with her friends Ben Van Handel and Katelynn Hanson, were on foot when they were struck by Bakdash, who was driving his car the wrong way on 5th Street Southeast in Dinkytown on April 15, 2011.
Bagley suffered severe injuries to her leg, and Van Handel was killed.
A claim against the Library Bar, which served Bakdash alcohol on the night of the hit and run, and one against Bakdash’s mother, who lent him her car, have both been settled. But due to an insurance dispute in Hennepin County, the judgments have not yet been paid.
