Steve Rosenbloom, former general manager of the New Orleans Saints
and the Los Angeles Rams, is in a New Orleans hospital recovering
from what he has described as a freakish automobile accident last
Sunday in which he suffered a fractured skull. His former wife,
Renee Rosenbloom, who has been with him since the accident, said
last night that Rosenbloom was driving a 1967 Glassic roadster, a
fiberglass-bodied replica of a 1931 Ford. Mrs. Rosenbloom said her
husband told her he fell out of the car, which had no locks, and
curtains instead of windows, when it ran off a curve on a
cobble-stoned street and hit a loading dock.
She said he did not suspect foul play. The incident occurred a
day before the telecast of a documentary suggesting that
Rosenbloom's father, Carroll Rosenbloom, the Rams' owner who drowned
in 1979, might have been murdered as a result of his gambling
activities. Steve Rosenbloom said in that telecast that he believed
his father had been slain.
