HANOVER, NJ – An official investigation discovered that a hit-and-run driver lied to police about the nature of a crash in Hanover, according to Daily Voice.
28-year-old Adam Barron abandoned his damaged vehicle after a crash on Route 10 on August 16. Police were able to trace the vehicle to the Texas man, who was staying as a nearby hotel.
Barron had reported to police that his vehicle was struck by a hit-and-run driver while he made a U-turn, and that it broke down as he attempted to pursue the other motorist.
However, officials later learned through their investigation that Barron left his vehicle after crashing into a wall, for reasons that were not specified.
Police arrested Barron on charges of hindering, reckless driving, making an illegal U-turn, failure to report, and leaving the scene of an accident.
