Looks like people were trying to get in on the food truck business without any food; 15 people were arrested in Miami for using lunch trucks to stage auto accidents.

From these accidents, they claimed $800,000 in property damage and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) from insurance.

CBS reports that between 2008 and 2010, the food truck ring staged more than a dozen accidents; no word on whether the trucks were actually ever serving food.
