Greenwich – Family Of Crash Victim Receives Settlement
The family of a motorist killed in an accident in Greenwich will receive compensation.
The settlement was agreed to by both parties last Friday and is connected to a November 2016 incident where then 38-year-old Cristina Ann Vomoca died after the car she was driving was hit by a tractor-trailer driven by 52-year-old Jeffrey Bodnar. The collision occurred on Arch Street, near the off- and on-ramps of I-95, exit 3. Bodnar was suspected of running the red light while crossing Arch Street. This resulted in his truck hitting Vomoca’s vehicle. The crash also injured 32-year-old Maiko Kobayashi who was Vomoca’s passenger at the time of the accident. The settlement of $18.75 million will be shouldered by Transervice Lease Corporation, the owner of the tractor-trailer.
