Paparazzo Accused Of Fleeing Jackson Crash
The paparazzo who smashed into the back of a security car following Michael Jackson's children is to be investigated over a suspected hit-and-run, according to U.S. reports.
The late King of Pop's kids, Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II, were being driven by their nanny Grace Rwaramba on their way to a karate class on Wednesday (21Oct09) when a pack of photographers followed them.
Initial reports suggested a snapper rammed into the back of the vehicle the children were in, along with their grandmother and guardian Katherine Jackson.
It has now been revealed the photographer struck a car tailing the Jackson clan and not the vehicle they were travelling in.
Witnesses tell TMZ.com the driver who hit the car fled the scene after impact without stopping to exchange information - which could result in a felony charge.
Police officers confirm a hit-and-run report was taken straight after the incident near the Jackson home in Encino, Los Angeles.
Shortly after the crash Jackson patriarch Joe confirmed the three siblings and Katherine were all fine and back at home safely.
An investigation is currently underway into the incident. No other details were available as WENN went to press.
