DOVER, Del. (AP)- An attorney for a Delaware woman who filed a lawsuit over a car accident involving a Joe Biden vice presidential motorcade says the case has been resolved in mediation.
 
The attorney for Gina Cherwaty, of Selbyville, notified a federal judge this week that a mediation hearing last month was successful and that the case will be dismissed.
 
Cherwaty said she was injured in October 2016 when Secret Service agent James Hall ran a red light in Wilmington and struck several cars, including hers.
 
Government lawyers denied negligence by Hall, while not specifically addressing whether he ran a red light.
 
A Secret Service official claimed that Hall's vehicle was operating its emergency lights and siren and had slowed to a near stop. Cherwaty's lawyer said witnesses reported no lights or siren.
