Jake T. Austin

Ex-Disney Star Named

in Nasty Hit-n-Run Crash

EXCLUSIVE

1119_jake_austin_crash_new_template_launchJake T. Austin -- who starred as Max Russo on the hit Disney show "Wizards of Waverly Place" -- was involved in a bizarre 4-car hit-and-run crash this morning ... and TMZ has the pics.

Here's what we know -- a 2010 Audi with NY plates slammed into 3 parked cars on a street in Sherman Oaks, CA around 3AM Tuesday morning.  The cars suffered major damage.

According to an official incident report, obtained by TMZ, the Audi is registered to 18-year-old Austin (real name Jake Szymanski).  It's unclear if Austin was driving the car at the time of the wreck.

Witnesses tell TMZ ... after the driver hit the parked cars, someone in the ride threw a bottle of Ciroc at a nearby property.  One witness tells us the driver and his passengers called a black car service to come pick them up before cops arrived to the scene.  The witness described one of the guys as a white male with dark hair who looked really young and acted really drunk.

Once officers arrived, they saw the wrecked Audi, along with the path of destruction -- but no Jake --  and issued a document to one of the people who suffered damage, which explained that the incident was being handled as a hit-and-run.

The document also shows the Audi is registered to Austin.

We spoke with cops -- who tell us they're currently investigating the situation. So far, no arrests have been made.

Remember this is California where he'll receive a scripted lecture by a judge and receive a police escort to receive the key to the city from the mayor.

One of Uncle Walt's kids in trouble? What do you expect from a corporation which sexualizes its employees? At least Uncle Walt isn't around to accuse people of being communists anymore.
