Deputies: Man confesses to carjacking hoax

Man in his 20s faces charges after crashing in Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. - A driver who first claimed he was carjacked in Orlando later recanted, saying he made the story up to cover up a crash, according to officials.

The crash happened last night on Boggy Creek Road near Weatherbee Road, just south of the Orlando International Airport.

Investigators say the driver, who is in his 20s, will most likely face charges, including filing a false police report and driving without a valid drivers license.
