LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — The city of Lubbock has agreed to pay $80,000 in a settlement with a woman injured when she stepped into a hole on her way out of a Texas Tech football game.

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1c6gKez ) that the Lubbock City Council approved the settlement last week for Eva Montez.

Montez sued the city after she was hurt in Nov. 2010 leaving a Texas Tech game. She alleged that she stepped into a hole left when workers removed a utility pole next to a sidewalk.

The hole was estimated at 4 to 5 feet deep.

The settlement also calls on the city to pay up to $10,000 in mediation fees, court costs and interest.
