Wacko Jacko aka Michael Jackson may have been involved in a strance hit-and-run wreck with an ambulance in Beverly Hills on Wednesday afternoon. Read more on Michael Jackson’s hit-and-run below.
Jamin Mauro, an EMT, says Michael Jackson got in an SUV that fled the scene of a collision.
Emergency medical technician Jamin Mauro and his partner were waiting outside Cedars-Sinai hospital when a black Cadillac Escalade ran into their vehicle, sideswiping the ambulance and knocking a mirror off the emergency vehicle. But the Escalade driver just jumped out with an umbrella and went into the hospital and met Michael Jackson.
“We were hit by the Escalade, and I was taking pictures for my company insurance,” Mauro said. “About 30 seconds after, Jackson walked out of a medical building. He jumped into the Escalade and they sped off.”
Mauro stated that a nurse did say that Michael Jackson had been in the building.
It would make sense for Jackson to be in town for his public exhibition conducted by Julien’s Auctions. Items being presented range from his “iconic white-jeweled glove to the grandiose entry gates to Neverland Ranch,” according to juliensauctions.com.
The Beverly Hills Police Department issued a statement about the incident and said paparazzi had been following the Escalade at the time of the collision.
“The suspect’s vehicle, a dark colored SUV, struck a parked vehicle causing moderate damage to the victim’s vehicle. The suspect’s vehicle was being followed by a group of paparazzi at the time of the collision,” according to the statement.
Mauro and his partner were banged up in the crash, but more upset that the driver of the Escalade took off without exchanging information
“I don’t know if Jackson told him to leave or not,” Mauro said. “But they should have stayed.”
