Trouble for Mother Who Tried to Take Rap for Daughter Who Sideswiped Cars on Byram Rd

A mother and daughter compounded their troubles with Greenwich Police on the morning of Oct 29th after a crash on Byram Rd by Sherman Ave.

Around 7:30am Greenwich Police responded to the scene on Byram Rd.  Initial on scene investigation revealed that Maria Morales-Romero, 67, of 2700 Bedford Street in Stamford was the driver. However, further investigation revealed that Ms Morales-Romero was actually the passenger, and her daughter Valery Pierre Crovetto, 44, of the same address, was the driver.

According to Greenwich Police Lt Slusarz, there were cars parked along the side of the road on Byram Rd and the driver sideswiped them.

Slusarz said the mother of the driver claimed she had been driving and the daughter didn’t have a driver’s license.

“What happened was they had a minor crash and the daughter freaked out and tried to drive away,” Slusarz said. “Because the mother tried to cover for the daughter and told the investigation officer, ‘I was driving, not my daughter,’ they were charged with interfering with an officer.”

Slusarz said it’s not wise to lie to officers. Police will figure it out,” he said. “And there were witnesses.”

Ms. Morales-Romero was charged with Interfering with an Officer.

Ms. Corvetto was charged with Evading Responsibility, Failure to Drive in Proper Lane, Driving Without a License and Interfering with an Officer. She was released on a $300 bond.

Both women are scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on November 13.
