The Chicago City Council will vote Wednesday on whether to approve a $6.25 million settlement to a man who suffered brain damage when he was struck by a city truck.

Richard Chang was hurt when the vehicle driven by city worker Dwight Washington slammed into a crowd of people on a sidewalk in Chicago's Gold Coast last year. Washington is serving a 9-year prison sentence for DUI .

Chang is a computer scientist, but cannot resume his career because of his injuries.

Three other lawsuits involving four victims have also been filed.
