RECOMMENDATION
Reject the claim of State Farm Insurance in subrogation for Venus Jones and Ebony Williams that was presented on March 22, 2005, as recommended by the City’s third-party adjuster, Contra Costa County Municipal Risk Management Insurance Authority.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND
Claimant, State Farm Insurance, presented a claim in the amount of $6,789.73 for an incident that took place October 12, 2004. Their insured, Venus Jones, was a passenger in her own vehicle. The driver, Ebony Williams, was proceeding southbound on Brentwood Boulevard when she struck a City vehicle, driven by a City employee, heading west bound on Oak Street.

This claim was recommended for rejection because the driver of the City vehicle was crossing through the intersection on a yellow light. The insured driver should have yielded the right of way to our City vehicle.

FISCAL IMPACT
No fiscal impact at this time.
