SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

The City of Scottsdale will pay out almost half a million dollars to a bicyclist who injured himself on a city bike path once known as "dead man's curve."

Allen Fenyvez and the City came to an agreement Friday, settling the case for $420,000.

The case was scheduled to go to trial the first week of February.

In 2009, Fenyvez got into an accident on his bicycle and broke his collarbone, hip, ribs and punctured a lung.

Fenyvez' attorney Rob Lewis said Scottsdale received a number of complaints about the bike path, but took eight years to repair it.
