Cops say woman lied about crash

Post-Tribune - - Local -

A Val­paraiso woman was charged with drunken driv­ing, leav­ing the scene of a crash and false in­form­ing af­ter a hit-and-run accident Thurs­day even­ing, po­lice said.

Kar­ley Stokes, 22, called po­lice about 5:50 p.m. to re­port that a driver had struck her Chevro­let Equinox, which had heavy front end dam­age, while trav­el­ing south on Calumet Av­enue.

But po­lice also got a call about a hit-and-run crash that hap­pened about 10 min­utes ear­lier at Bulls­eye Road and Oak Grove Drive, and wit­nesses gave the li­cense plate num­ber of Stokes’ SUV as the ve­hi­cle that fled that scene, po­lice re­ported.

They said Stokes con­sis­tently de­nied be­ing in­volved in that crash, but the ev­i­dence that she was led to her ar­rest.
