Ohio is paying a motorcycle rider $300,000 to settle a claim over a crash caused by a pothole on a state route on-ramp.

Michael Hamon of Delaware listed 13 separate injuries from the 2007 wreck in which he incurred $1.2 million in medical and hospital expenses, along with more than $58,000 in lost wages.

The Ohio Supreme Court says Hamon lost control of his motorcycle and hit the road after striking the pothole as he merged onto state Route 2 on Aug. 2, 2007.

Hamon’s suit against the state alleged the pothole had caused several other accidents and the state had been aware of the problem for a while.
