Ex-Disney Star Jake T. Austin Named in Hit-and-Run Crash – Report
“The Fosters” star Jake T. Austin has allegedly been named in a four-car hit-and-run this week.
TMZ reports that a 2010 Audi registered to Austin, 18, “slammed into 3 parked cars on a street in Sherman Oaks, CA around 3am Tuesday morning.”
A witness tells the site that the driver and passengers were picked up by a black car service and were nowhere to be found.
Because police did not locate him, the driver cannot be charged for driving under the influence, but Austin could reportedly be in hot water for leaving the scene of an accident.
Still, an insider alleges that Austin went straight to the ER after the crash and was treated with stitches.
Another hitch for the young actor is that he was reportedly arrested on October 8 on a DUI charge in the same vehicle, according to TMZ.
Austin is perhaps best known for his role on Disney’s Selena Gomez-starrer “Wizards of Waverly Place,” but he currently co-stars on ABC Family’s hit drama “The Fosters.”
