UPDATE: A rep for Jasmine Sanders told TMZ that the model was not involved in the accident. “On behalf of our client, Jasmine Sanders, we would like to clarify that Ms. Sanders was not in the vehicle at the time of this morning’s accident and was in no way involved,” the rep said in a statement to the outlet.
The update comes as witnesses reported spotting Sanders and Terrence Jenkins flee the scene, but now it looks like another woman other than Sanders may be involved.
ORIGINAL POST: Terrence J Jasmine Sanders Reportedly Involved In Hit And Run Accident
A car registered to former E! News host Terrence J was involved in a serious car accident on Tuesday, TMZ reports.
According to law enforcement sources who spoke to the outlet, a gray MacLaren registered to Terrence Jenkins hit a parking meter around 12:30 a.m. in Studio City, California on Tuesday. The car came to a halt when it hit a tree.
Witnesses say Jasmine Sanders, Jenkins’ girlfriend, lost control of the vehicle while she was at the wheel and that Jenkins was riding as a passenger. However, authorities have not yet confirmed who was involved in the accident.
Witnesses tell the outlet that the couple fled the scene after the wreck. Police are currently gathering surveillance footage from neighboring businesses.
California state law shows that there are two types of hit and run offenses; misdemeanor and felony. To be charged with a California misdemeanor hit and run under vehicle Code 20002VC you either, left the scene of an accident, left without identifying yourself to the other party or parties involved. A felony only applies if all three offenses were met and a person or persons were injured or killed.
No word on the total amount of damage, but the MacLaren has an estimated base value of over $200,000.
According to TMZ, reps for both Sanders and Jenkins have not yet responded to comment.
Jenkins and Sanders have been involved in a long-term relationship since 2016. Jenkins rose to fame as a host on BET’s video countdown show, 106 Park. He left the network in 2012 to join E! News as a host. The same year he starred in the Think Like A Man, based on the popular book by Tyler Perry. Jenkins also starred in the followup, Think Like A Man Too in 2014. He left E! in 2015 to pursue other ventures in acting and producing. Since his departure, he’s produced The Perfect Match, starring singer Cassie. Sanders is a successful model who has waked for Miu Miu, Moschino, and participated in campaigns for Forever 21, and Aldo.
