Tow truck driver charged for alleged accident scene chicanery

Recommended Posts

A 38-year-old London man is facing four charges, including attempted fraud, after a woman’s vehicle was towed under alleged false pretences recently.

 

On June 29, a woman was involved in a collision in the city’s northeast shortly after noon. The woman contacted a roadside assistance service to have her vehicle towed to the police accident reporting centre on Brydges Street.

 

Shortly after she made the call, a tow truck driver arrived and when asked if he was sent by the service, the driver said he was.

 

When the woman went to the accident reporting centre, she learned her vehicle had been taken from there to another location without her knowledge and that the truck that towed her vehicle was not sent by her roadside service provider.

 

Police have since charged a 38-year-old London man with mischief under $5,000, attempted fraud, personation to gain advantage, and possession of property obtained by crime.

 

The accused is set to appear in a London court at a late date.
