Police sources tell TMZ the Orlando Bloom car crash investigation will be sent to the L.A. County District Attorney's office today for felony review. The investigation focuses on Bloom and a paparazzo who allegedly cut Bloom off before Orlando crashed into a parked car.
The lead officer tells TMZ that the LAPD will not make a recommendation on whether to prosecute either Bloom or the pap.
The LAPD's investigation centers on whether Bloom and/or the pap committed felony hit and run. The X17 photo agency has video of Bloom walking away from the crash, as one of the passengers lay in the back seat with a fractured neck. He was urged by paparazzi to return to the scene -- and he finally did.
As for the mysterious SUV that may have been chasing Bloom at the time of the crash, the investigating officer tells TMZ the driver of a car that did not make contact with another vehicle could still be prosecuted for hit and run if that driver caused the crash. The officer would not say if he had identified the driver of the SUV.
No word on how long the D.A. will take to review the case.
