Photos have emerged of the damage to Lance Armstrong's SUV that allegedly hit into two parked cars during a hit and run in Colorado.

Aspen police cited Armstrong with failing to report an accident and speeding on January 12 after the December 28 accident, but only after his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, admitted to lying for him.

Hansen initially told police she had been driving home from an Aspen Art Museum party when she lost control of Armstrong's GMC Yukon on the icy roads, hitting the cars. She said she drove because "Lance had a little bit to drink," according to the reports.

Business Insider has published pictures online of the damaged SUV, with Armstrong due in court next month.
