Michael Jackson was involved in a hit-and-run accident with an ambulance yesterday.
EMT Jamin Mauro and his partner were parked outside Cedars-Sinai hospital when a black Cadillac Escalade plowed into their vehicle, sideswiping the ambulance and knocking a mirror off the emergency vehicle.
Mauro tells NBC that the driver then hopped out of the vehicle with an umbrella, walked to the hospital doors and greeted Michael Jackson at the door. But rather than assess the damage, the driver and Michael hopped in the car and drove off!
Mauro said he and his partner were banged up in the crash, but more upset that the driver of the Escalade did not take the time to exchange information before driving off.
Police noted that Michael’s Escalade was being followed by paparazzi, which isn’t out of the ordinary. But that doesn’t excuse the driver from checking to make sure the people he hit were ok! What if there was a patient in that ambulance?
Messages left for one Jackson publicist were unreturned. We smell a lawsuit! And that’s probably the last thing Michael Jackson needs right now!
