Man made up hit-run to get ride home

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Police in central Pennsylvania allege that a man fabricated a story about being the victim of a hit-and-run last month because he wanted a ride home.

A local newspaper says the 18-year-old Beach Haven resident was walking along Route 11 in Salem Township at about 1 a.m. on Feb. 8 when he called for help.

Police said he told officers and Berwick Ambulance personnel that he had been struck in the left leg by a pickup truck, but they could find no evidence of an injury.

Authorities allege that he eventually acknowledged having made up the story so he could get a ride.

They said the suspect will now be facing charges of causing a false alarm, filing a false report and disorderly conduct.
