A woman named Emily wants to warn Silver Lake area motorists about what she believes might be a potential insurance scam involving fake traffic accidents. The scam was mentioned by an insurance adjustor following the accident described below:
My partner Andrew was the victim of a hit and run in Silver Lake, right at the Riverside Dr. and Fletcher Dr. intersection last night, April 28, around 8:45 p.m. A person in a tan Kia SUV put his/her car in reverse in the left turn lane going onto Fletcher. Once the collision happened, the car drove away, cutting off other cars. This person cut off someone at Fletcher & Glendale Blvd. and the street behind the Ralphs. There were multiple cars that honked at this vehicle as it was posing a danger to themselves and others. My partner chased them to get the license plate. He got the plate numbers and reported it to the police. We have been warned that this could be a potential scam artist who will accuse my partner of running into him ( since the blame typically lies with the person who is behind in a rear end collision.) If anyone saw anything, please let us know. If anything, please be advised there might be a tan Kia driving around silver lake with no regard for human life, as this person ran stop signs and intersections to get away from the accident.
Anyone with information about the accident can sent it to [email protected].
