A 2015 incident in which a car and its driver dropped into a ditch in the roadway and flipped over has led Redlands, a developer and a contractor to recently OK a $2.25 million settlement to be paid by insurance companies.

According to the original complaint by Mark Digiacinto, filed in 2017 in San Bernardino Superior Court, he was driving east on Lugonia Avenue at 4:03 a.m. Dec. 29, 2015, in an area marked by construction cones.

When the cones ended on the right side he moved right, then felt his car “drop off” into the 2-foot deep ditch before it overturned.

In the complaint, he said he suffered serious neck and back injuries.

The city, developer Hillwood Construction Services of California LP, and contractor A Cone Zone Inc. were named as defendants.
