The policy, which started onJuly 1, covers payments if all the claims filed for one incident add up to fall between $5 and $25 million.
Matt Dorsey, spokesperson for the City Attorney’s office has said that as of Wednesday morning, only one claim regarding the July 18 incident has been submitted:
Flora Yee, a 61-year-old bank employee, is asking the city to pay for her possessions damaged in the crash. The items, which consist of sunglasses, a clay cooking pot, a jar of vinegar and fresh meat add up to $192.80. Yee is also planning to submit another claim for her medical costs.
All claims must be filed within 6 months after the incident, so that’s only $4,999,807.20 to go until that insurance will kick in.
