Several good Samaritans ... including someone who appeared to be a doctor or nurse ... stopped to try to help Aubrey McClendon after his car crash -- but the fire proved to be too dangerous. 

TMZ Sports obtained the 911 calls from the crash -- one caller says he actually witnessed the impact. The witnesses say McClendon's SUV swerved and crashed into the underpass and caught fire. 

Another witness says people were running up to the car to try to help ... but noted the fire was "really escalating."

Eventually, the car burst into flames and another witness told 911 ... "There were people standing up there by the vehicle, which doesn't seem very smart to me."

Emergency vehicles raced to the scene -- but it was too late.

1/29/2016 10:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0129_miss_washington_stabbing_bloody_photos_launchTMZ Sports has obtained photos of the bloody scene at Marco Pappa's apartment -- after the MLS player was stabbed ... showing a bloody knife and a blood trail from the kitchen to the bathroom.

As we previously reported, cops say ex-Miss Washington Stormy Keffeler called 911 on Dec. 17th to report an accident at her boyfriend's Seattle apartment -- but when cops arrived both she and Marco told cops they had no idea what happened. 

0129-sub-miss-washington-tmz-01Marco was stabbed in the torso and needed surgery -- he denied Keffeler was his attacker. 

But check out the pics ... cops say they found a bloody knife in the kitchen and a blood trail that led to the bathroom. They say they also found stab marks on the wall. 


Cops sent the knife to the crime lab to be checked for fingerprints -- but no prints were recovered. 

For the record, officials tell TMZ Sports Stormy has NOT been charged with a crime, however the case is still under review. 

update_graphic_red_bar11:45 AM PT -- TMZ Sports has also obtained a copy of the 911 call in which Stormy initially tells the operator, "I had an accident at my boyfriend’s apartment."

When pressed, Stormy later says she has no idea how Marco was stabbed.  

At one point, an emergency responder can be heard saying, "This sounds suspicious to me."

11:54 AM PT -- Another interesting twist regarding Marco's brother, Jose -- who had previously told a major Guatemalan newspaper that he was visiting Marco in December and never heard about the stabbing

The twist ... is that Marco gave a statement to detectives at the hospital following the stabbing and Jose WAS THERE ... even identifying himself by name. 

So, the question ... why would Jose lie to the media?

By the way, officials say the call came in to 911 at 12:14 AM -- 9 MINUTES after prison officials say they found Phillips unresponsive in his cell.  

As we previously reported, Phillips' next of kin -- along with his biological mother and his lawyer -- do NOT believe Lawrence committed suicide ... and are demanding an investigation into the death. 

Prison officials say Phillips was found unresponsive in his cell early Wednesday morning and was pronounced dead 90 minutes later after he was transported to a nearby hospital.

Street says the whole thing started after her dad accidentally crashed his car into her home -- and an argument ensued.

You can hear Picabo screaming at her parents during the call -- in fact, she yells at her mother while explaining that her father hit her first.

11/4/2015 12:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Cops have cleared Michael Lohan of criminal child abuse, despite Kate Major's assertion he struck one of their kids.

Kate told child services Michael choked her on Oct 11 during an argument and slapped their son in the face. 

Kate showed cops a video she shot during the argument ... according to the police report, the video did not prove Kate's assertion that Michael struck their son. We're told Michael also played audio for cops in which Kate acknowledged he never struck their kid.

TMZ broke the story ... the kids were taken by child services because of the hostile environment they were living in with Michael and Kate ... and the bitter arguing in the video helped prove the point.

Cops were called again to Kate's house just a few days later on Nov 2 after she said Michael came banging on her door. You can hear from the 911 call ... it seems Kate was scared for her life.  

Michael's mother currently has custody over the couple's 10-month-old and 2-year-old after a judge's ruling on Tuesday.
