Crash Victim Hires Attorney

by Categorized: City Hall, Crime, Police Date:

Caitlin Greenbaum, who was in the vehicle that collided with former Deputy Public Works Director Rhonda Moniz-Carroll’s car Saturday night, has hired an attorney.

Police have said Moniz-Carroll was driving drunk and veered into another lane, striking another car. Sources identified the driver of the other car as Greenbaum.

Greenbaum’s attorney, John R. Logan of Torrington, sent a letter to Corporation Counsel Saundra Kee Borges and Town and City Clerk John Bazzano Friday requesting that “the appropriate risk manager or insurance representative” for the city contact him. He asked that city officials deal with him directly and avoid contact with Greenbaum.

Greenbaum, of Hartford, was taken to St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center for treatment of an ankle injury and a concussion Saturday.

Moniz-Carroll was driving a city-owned 2012 Ford Escape south on Prospect Avenue Saturday night and crossed into another lane, colliding with a 2006 Nissan Altima headed south, according to a police report. Both cars were damaged in the crash.

Moniz-Carroll was charged with driving while intoxicated and failure to drive in a proper lane. She was fired from her city job Monday.

    Why would the city have anything to do with this accident? She was using a city vehicle on her own time(which violates city policy), not during work hours or for job related purposes. To quote an article from the courant last week ‘City-issued vehicles are to be used “only for commuting between the home and work assignments,” according to city policy. “No other personal use is allowed,” the policy states.’
    That’s like suing Aetna because an Aetna employee crashed their company car on the way to the grocery store on a Sunday afternoon. This makes no sense. I hope the city doesn’t think they are liable for some reason.
