RALEIGH, N.C. — The family of a Raleigh police officer who died in a 2002 motorcycle wreck while chasing a speeder settled a lawsuit with Harley-Davidson Motor Co. and the Raleigh store that leased the vehicle to the police department.

Charles Radford Paul III, 30, was chasing a speeding car on the I-440 Beltline on Sept. 10, 2002, when he tried to overtake a tractor-trailer. A draft from the truck appeared to have caused the motorcycle to wobble. He veered into the highway's shoulder and was eventually thrown off the 2002 Electra Glide motorcycle.
