Martin Luther King Jr.'s family just got into an auto accident while leaving the rally to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his "I have a dream" speech ... TMZ has learned.

According to sources on the scene ... several of MLK Jr.'s siblings and grandchildren were on a charter bus leaving the rally when a van ran a red light ... forcing the bus driver to slam on the brakes to dodge the vehicle.

MLK's sister -- Christine King Farris -- was on the bus at the time of the accident. Earlier in the day, the 85-year-old placed a wreath on the MLK Jr. Memorial.

Farris was joined at the wreath ceremony by MLK's daughter Bernice King.

We're told Bernice was not on the bus at the time of the accident.

We're told Omarosa Manigault was on the bus with the family ... and hit her head on the seat in front of her, but she's okay.

We're told the bus driver was transported to a nearby hospital.

Omarosa tweeted after the crash -- "Yikes just got banged up a lil bit on bus- I am ok! #HitMyHead ouch"

"KRIS" the Kris Jenner TV show... has been CANCELLED!! YAY!! But TMZ posts a story about a fenderbender where nobody got hurt, instead of negative press about the Kardashians.

HA HA HA!!! You use Martin Luther King Jr. as the title to get us to click, then it's a story about how Omarossa hit her head (again!) . HOW ABOUT REPORTING ON KRIS JENNERS SHOW GETTING FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET BY THE NETWORKS?

Excuse me??


a) What the F'n F*CK is Omarosa Ma****ult doing at that event in the first place; and,


2) I would have thrown a 3 day party if that sack of sh!t Omarosa Ma****ult had died on the scene. That pig is 100% pure human excrement.

The "I have a dream" speech 50yrs ago was good & impactful at the time but it had no long-term effect. Too bad it didn't carry any weight or invoke change but ultimately, it was just a nice speech during a brief moment in time.

This wouldn't have happened if they were seated in the back of the bus.
