Ron Jeremy Hits Pedestrian, Cops Investigate

EXCLUSIVE

Porn legend Ron Jeremy busted a left turn while driving through Bev Hills, but failed to see a guy crossing the street and hit him -- now cops are on the case ... TMZ has learned.

It all went down Wednesday night and Jeremy says he never saw the pedestrian, who was dressed in all black. He says he "nicked" the guy. Cops and paramedics responded -- the victim was hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries.

Law enforcement sources tell us drugs and alcohol were not a factor. The photo makes it seem like cops handcuffed Jeremy on the scene, but both he and cops say that's not the case. He wasn't cited, but the accident's under investigation.
