MONROE, CT — An 82-year-old Fairfield woman was taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center with what police say are non-life threatening injuries after being involved in a rollover crash on Cottage Street Sunday morning.

Police said the woman was heading south in her Toyota Corolla, just before 11 a.m., when she ran off the road to right, went over a traffic island and reentered the roadway, then drove to the left and up an embankment, before her car rolled over to the right, coming to rest on its passenger side.

Stevenson and Monroe firefighters extricated the driver from her vehicle, which was towed. Monroe Volunteer Emergency Medical personnel treated the woman at the scene and took her to the hospital.

She received a verbal warning for failure to maintain the proper lane.

A domestic incident

A 26-year-old Knorr Road man allegedly punched his partner in the face during an argument at his home Saturday afternoon.

He was charged with disorderly conduct and third-degree assault and released on $2,500 bond for a Sept. 11 court date.

The victim declined medical attention according to police.

Identity theft

A Monroe man told police an anonymous caller claimed to know his Social Security Number on Sept. 6. He hung up on the caller, but his bank contacted him on Saturday to inform him his account was flagged for possible identity theft.

The Monroe man did not suffer any financial loss and had already contacted the three major credit bureaus and changed his accounts before going to police.
