Pennsylvania Police Probing Car Accident Cover up

March 3, 2009

State police in northwestern Pennsylvania say they’re investigating a car accident that left a man in an Ohio hospital and his friends possibly facing criminal charges for falsely telling police he fell down some steps.

Police have not charged anybody in the crash that happened about 2 a.m. Feb. 21.

They say three New Wilmington-area friends were out drinking when they crashed. Police say they got other friends to move the wreckage without reporting it to police, then called for an ambulance telling dispatchers that a friend had fallen down some steps.

That 26-year-old man was transferred to the Cleveland Clinic. But police say that man has since called police and told them the truth, that he was a passenger in the wrecked car.
