Christopher and Kimberly Phelps of Yucaipa are facing felony fraud charges after filing 17 insurance claims related to car crashes that the San Bernardino District Attorney’s Office said they intentionally caused, sometimes with their child in the car.
The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department began looking into the couple after finding their YouTube channel of dashcam footage, according to the District Attorney’s Office. The department found 23 collisions documented on the channel that were linked to 17 insurance claims filed by Christopher.
The Phelpses have pleaded not guilty to each charge. The San Bernardino County Office of the Public Defender has not responded to our request for comment.
