Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the LAPD will submit the Orlando Bloom car crash case to the L.A. County D.A.'s office, and the D.A. will then decide whether to file felony hit and run charges against the actor.
Bloom crashed a car into a parked Porsche just after 2:00 AM Friday. He walked away from the crash, leaving two passengers inside the car, one injured with a fractured neck. X17 shot video of Bloom walking from the scene. Several photogs then told Bloom he'd be in big trouble if he kept walking, and Bloom turned back and asked if someone would call an ambulance -- suggesting he did not call 911 before leaving the scene. That would be an important factor in deciding if this were a hit and run.
Bloom claims a paparazzi-driven SUV caused the crash. Police are investigating. They are interviewing photogs at the scene. And law enforcement says there are surveillance tapes of the incident which they are also reviewing.
A cop connected with the case tells TMZ the case will be submitted to the D.A. "in a week or so."
