It’s always fun until somebody gets busted for alleged insurance fraud. A crew of friends staged a car accident during the summer in NYC, and then attempted to collect on insurance payments. Authorities said some Bronx residents were responsible in a report picked up by a New York Criminal Lawyer. Officials got to the bottom of the caper by viewing surveillance video recorded above the crash site.
Investigators noticed the slow motion appearances the crash had. It didn’t add up for them so they became suspicious and probed further in their investigation. There was even an attempt by one of the drivers involved where they repeated a move to make it look more convincing. All of this was in the recording.
Police told a Bronx Criminal Lawyer that the participants made their cars collide at the scene. Moments later, they reappeared at the same location, following a brief spin around the block. Once they had returned the drivers pretended to back into each other, which caused further damages. The drivers called 911 and filled out false police reports. They even alleged injuries and sought medical treatment at a local Bronx medical facility. The medical facility billed over $30,000 in medical costs in less than a half days’ time.
