A local driver who reported a hit-skip crash in Huntsville earlier this week lied to deputies.
The Logan County Sheriff’s Office charged Ryan Armstrong, 28, of 208 West Brown Avenue, Bellefontaine, with falsification Friday afternoon.
Armstrong was issued the summons after he admitted to filing a false report Monday afternoon around 4:30.
Armstrong said he was driving a 2000 Chevy pickup southbound on State Route 117 when his vehicle was hit on the passenger's side by an eastbound mid-sized car on Township Road 221.
Instead, Armstrong backed into another vehicle in the Huntsville Marathon parking lot.
His pickup suffered minor damage.
No one was injured.
