Evanston aldermen approved a $4.75 million settlement after a city employee driving a garbage truck struck a Skokie woman’s SUV in Oct. 2016. Evanston attorneys and other city officials declined to comment when reached after the meeting. "I still can’t move my left hand and my left leg was broken," said Katea Yakhnis, 33, of Skokie when reached by phone Friday. She filed a personal injury lawsuit Oct. 24, 2016 in Cook County Circuit Court. It followed the Oct. 16, 2016 incident where the SUV Yakhnis was driving was struck by the garbage truck as it was traveling in Skokie.
