BRIDGEPORT - A Waterbury man has been charged with causing the crashes last August that killed a popular 61-year-old woman and severely injured two pedestrians while he was fleeing police.

Joseph Guzman-Rivera, 22, of Cliff Street, was arrested Tuesday and charged with first-degree manslaughter, two counts of first-degree assault and three counts of reckless endangerment as well as motor vehicle offenses.

He was being held in lieu of $750,000 bond.

Shortly after 1 p.m. on Aug. 10, state police attempted to pull Guzman-Rivera’s car over on South Avenue for having dark tinted windows and an illegible rear license plate, police said.

However, police said Guzman-Rivera instead sped up driving through residential areas and a school zone at high speed.

Susan Tomczyk had just left her doctor’s office where she had gotten a clean bill of health on her new hip replacement and was headed to her Bridgeport home when police said Guzman-Rivera blew through the red traffic light at the intersection of Iranistan and Railroad avenues plowing into the side of a Tomczyk’s Toyota sedan and forcing her car into a cement wall, police said.

Tomczyk was pronounced dead an hour later from multiple injuries at St. Vincent’s Medical Center.
