HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted a Pennsylvania woman after authorities say she used the identity of a licensed physician to perform physicals on holders of commercial driver’s licenses.

Federal prosecutors said Wednesday that 58-year-old Joann Wingate of Carlisle was indicted last month on charges of wire fraud, submitting false documents and aggravated identify theft.

Authorities say Wingate lost her chiropractor’s license in 2014 and began using a doctor’s identity.

Prosecutors say she offered her services at rest stops and gas stations in 2013 and 2014.

Authorities say Wingate also entered an agreement to handle a trucking company’s driver drug and alcohol testing program, collected urine samples and sent them to medical labs, and sent bogus documents to state transportation officials.

It’s not known if Wingate has a lawyer.
