Philly Cop Charged With Leaving Crash Scene, Insurance Fraud (My Fox NY)
Friday December 7th, 2012
PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia police say a 14-year veteran of the force faces charges after she allegedly left the scene of a crash while off-duty and then filed a false insurance claim.
[...]According to a news release from the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office, Shaynick ran a stop sign in her 2004 Honda Civic and struck a 2003 Mazda Protégé that was occupied by a driver and a passenger.
The D.A.'s office says Shaynick never stopped to assess damage or ask if anyone was injured. The Mazda's driver suffered injuries to her right knee and had to be taken from the scene in an ambulance.
[...]Instead of reporting the accident, Shaynick went home and filed a false report to Allstate Insurance Company the next day, the D.A.'s office says. In the claim she stated that her car was parked unattended on Oxford Avenue on Aug. 10, she was inside her house and heard a crash outside.
