ID Fraud Uncovered After Fatal Crash

BROTHERS, OR -- One person was killed and another seriously injured when a semi truck and trailer rolled near Brothers, early Thursday morning. By Saturday, State Police were questioning the identity of the survivor. 


Investigators say the driver, 47-year Angela Abernathy, of Florida, was killed when she was ejected in the Highway 20 crash. Her passenger was flown to St. Charles Bend with potentially life-threatening injuries. 
That passenger was originally identified through his ID as Darren Walp, of Abilene, Texas. But, OSP received several calls Saturday and later determined he's really 31-year-old Billy Wade. They believe Wade stole his identity about eight months ago, unbeknownst to Walp.
