Pennsylvania Woman Charged With Insurance Fraud in Crash

October 22, 2012

A Philadelphia, Pa., woman is charged with calling her car insurance company to supplement her policy as she sat in an ambulance after a crash.

Prosecutors said Friday that 23-year-old Regina Whitehead was charged with insurance fraud and attempted theft by deception.

Attorney General Linda Kelly said Whitehead was in a four-vehicle crash last October in Bucks County and called her insurance company in an ambulance on the way to the hospital to add comprehensive, collision, and rental coverage to her policy.

Investigators allege Whitehead filed a claim to her insurance company and said the accident happened after she obtained the additional coverage.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 24. It couldn’t be immediately determined if she had a lawyer.
