COVINGTON, KENTUCKY (FOX19) -

Covington Police now are searching for the man who they say provided false statements to investigators following a crash that closed John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge.

Police say Demarko D. Page, 24, of Cincinnati, was driving a Mercedes E-Class when he lost control on wet pavement the night of March 20. The collision caused structural damage to the 150-year-old bridge. 

According to the accident report, Page told law enforcement officials that he and his pregnant girlfriend were passengers in the vehicle that collided with a bridge pillar -- and that the driver had fled the scene on foot.

"This false statement resulted in a week of unnecessary investigative work," police wrote in a report.
