Two Dozen People Indicted In Insurance Fraud Scheme
A grand jury indicted 24 people last week in connection with a massive insurance fraud scheme that involved staged car crashes.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports most of the crashes took place on Nellis Boulevard, where two cars would trap victims by braking hard enough to make victims rear end the vehicles.
The suspects would then file fraudulent insurance claims, totaling around $500,000.
One of the intentional crashes sent an elderly couple to the hospital and one involved an 11-year-old boy. The 24 people indicted face a total of 68 counts of racketeering, fraud and battery charges
