ORIGINAL:
An investigation is underway in Fargo following a crash involving U.S. Attorney Drew Wrigley last Thursday.

U.S. Attorney Drew Wrigley says a woman is making accusations against him on social media after the two were involved in a crash in downtown Fargo Thursday night along 1st Avenue North and University Drive.

Britney Berger says Wrigley sideswiped her car. When the two spoke, he refused every attempt she made to get proper authority involved, and he left.

We spoke with Wrigley who says the crash did happen, but not the way she describes it. He says he was leaving work between 9:30 and 9:45 p.m. The two collided at an intersection and exchanged contact information for about 30 minutes.

Wrigley says they agreed that because the cost of damages was under $1,000 that they do not need to involve police, so he drove away.

He says it wasn't until they both drove away that the woman got the police involved.

Fargo Police indicated Monday afternoon that the woman did not want to file an incident report shortly after the crash and that one party, presumably Berger, wants to file a crash report.

Wrigley says he's tried reaching out to Berger multiple times, but she hasn't responded.

We also tried contacting her several times, with no luck.

A check of Fargo Dispatch that night indicates a hit and run call around that time.

Fargo Police say the crash remains under investigation.
