Hansen Took Blame For Lance Armstrong’s Accident

USA Today at the time reported, that Armstrong hit two parked cars after he had been drinking and failed to report the incident.
Meddling with the incident was Hansen who originally tried to claim that it was she who had been driving.
Hansen initially told police she had been heading home from an Aspen Art Museum party when she lost control of Armstrong’s GMC Yukon on the icy roads. After that, she added she hit the cars. She then claimed of driving the vehicle because “Lance had a little bit to drink.”
