Lauren Bozart, a spokeswoman for the state attorney general, says 23-year-old Regina Whitehead was involved in a four-vehicle accident in October of last year.
“What we allege happened is that, in an ambulance on the way to the hospital, Miss Whitehead called her insurance company in order to add comprehensive collision and rental coverage to her auto policy, for her vehicle that had just been involved in that accident,” Bozart explained.READ MORE: Philadelphia Weather: Week Starts With Muggy Conditions Before Cold Front Arrives
At some point later, Bozart says, Whitehead allegedly reported a claim to her insurance company and lied about the time of the accident.
Whitehead has been charged with one count of insurance fraud and one count of criminal attempt to commit theft by deception. She has been released on $10,000 unsecured bail.MORE NEWS: Philadelphia Officer Hit By Car In Tioga Section
