They Claimed She Was Driving, But It Was Allegedly He Behind The Wheel. Now A Bakersfield Couple Is Being Prosecuted.
By Lonce Lamonte - October 10, 2017

It was the old switcheroo.  Except they thought of it too late.   They couldn’t swap seats fast enough. 

The other driver saw Parneet Kaur and her husband, Sarabjit Singh, and noted where they were seated during and after their two cars collided in September of 2016.  That other driver reported to the claims adjuster that the husband, Sarabjit Singh, was the driver. 

When policy holders decide to insure only a specific driver for a vehicle in order to save money on car insurance, they pay a price bigger than what they saved if they allow someone else to drive that vehicle.  And that includes a spouse.   Then, they pay even more if they allow someone else to drive and lie about it when making a claim.  And lying is what Parneet Kaur and Sarabjit Singh allegedly did.

In his initial statement, following the crash, Singh reported he was the driver of his wife’s 2012 Toyota Camry.  But he wasn’t covered as a driver on the policy.  So, he changed his statement later and claimed his wife, Parneet, was driving. Therefore, Progressive Insurance Company paid more than $11,600 to the lienholder.  The Camry was a total loss due to the accident. 

Suspecting possible fraud, Progressive Insurance referred the case to the California Department of Insurance for investigation.  Detectives uncovered evidence that the couple allegedly provided false statements to Progressive Insurance, in an attempt to collect on the policy even though they did not have coverage because of someone driving other than Parneet Kaur. 

The Kern County District Attorney’s office filed charges and is now prosecuting this case.  Sarabit Singh surrendered to authorities at the Kern County Jail on Friday, October 7th 2017 and made bail that day.  His wife, Parneet Kaur, surrendered to authorities at the jail on Monday, October 9th 2017 and was still in custody as of Monday afternoon.  It is not known at this time if she has been released on bail.; Lonce Lamonte, journalist; based upon the news release from the California Department of Insurance on October 10th 2017.,
