Disney Star Jake T. Austin's Car Involved In Hit & Run
Jake T. Austin, the Disney actor who starred in Wizards of Waverly Place as Selena Gomez’s little brother, was cited in a hit-and-run accident report on Tuesday.
Jake T. Austin's Audi Involved In Car Crash
Austin, 18, is listed as the owner of the 2010 Audi involved in the accident in Sherman Oaks, Calif. The crash involved a total of four vehicles, including the Audi, and occurred around 3:30 a.m., a spokesperson for the Valley traffic division confirmed to People. All cars involved sustained considerable damage.
It has not been confirmed whether or not Austin was behind the wheel, but witnesses allege that someone exiting the Audi tossed a bottle of Ciroc before entering a vehicle provided by a car service with the rest of the passengers, reported TMZ. All of the individuals who’d been traveling in the Audi had left the scene prior to police arrival, and one of them was described as “a white male with dark hair who looked really young and acted really drunk.”
Austin, whose real name is Jake Szymanski, was arrested just last month on suspicion of a DUI. He’d reportedly been driving the 2010 Audi at the time of the previous incident.
Sherman Oaks police are currently handing the four-car crash as a hit-and-run. No arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation.
