EXCLUSIVE

Hope Ezekiel Elliott has good insurance ... 'cause a witness to the crash claims the RB's Yukon blew through a red light during Wednesday morning's crash ... and nearly took out another car in the process. 

TMZ Sports obtained the 911 call made by a witness who told the operator, "I can tell you that the Yukon cruised right through the red light and hit that car."

The witness explained, "He almost hit me. I slammed on the brakes. I saw him coming."

Cops and Dallas Cowboys security rushed to the scene. Police said there were no injuries, which is pretty amazing considering the way the witness described the scene.

Bottom line ... Zeke's lucky this wasn't worse than it was.

David Spade could be the best pitchman ever for Range Rover, because it could have saved his life ... and he knows it.

David was out in Bev Hills Monday and he gave us the play-by-play on a wreck that destroyed his ride.

Royal Caribbean Cruises Sued for Jamaican Bus Ride from Hell

EXCLUSIVE

Royal Caribbean Cruises put a bunch of tourists in a death trap by setting them up with a reckless Jamaican bus driver who ended up getting into a huge wreck ... according to a new lawsuit.

The 8 passengers suing were aboard the Independence of the Seas a year ago when they pulled into port and booked a day excursion to Dunn's River Falls ... which required them to take a bus, and their description of the ride is pretty hairy.

They say the driver was speeding, changing lanes and generally driving like a maniac. They repeatedly asked him to slow down, but were told he was driving "the way everyone typically drove in Jamaica."

According to docs, the only thing slow about the driver was his reaction to an oncoming truck ... which had swerved into their lane. The passengers say their wheel man failed to get out of the way, and the bus was broadsided and flipped multiple times ... causing severe and permanent injuries.

They say Royal Caribbean stuck them with an incompetent driver and failed to provide a safe excursion. 

It's interesting, Jamaica's roads are kinda like the Wild West -- it's a known risk of traveling there -- so, this case could impact how cruise lines book day trips for passengers.

EXCLUSIVE

0105-david-spade-car-accident-TMZ-01David Spade's lucky to be alive, and his luxury SUV is destroyed after he got smashed by another vehicle on Sunset Blvd ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Spade tell us he was heading to dinner Wednesday around 6:40 PM when he took a left turn at the very busy intersection in front of the Beverly Hills Hotel -- it's one of the most dangerous in town.

We're told an oncoming car sped up to beat the yellow light, and collided with Spade's Range Rover. His airbags deployed, his ride spun into another car and 1 of his rear tires went flying about 100 feet. Law enforcement sources tell us there were minor injuries, but nobody was transported to the hospital. No determination yet on fault.

Spade's going to the doctor to get checked out for minor bumps and bruises. His Range looks to be totaled.

We're told neither drugs nor alcohol were involved ... just an "old fashioned crash."

Miles Teller Car Crash 911 ... Anyone Ejected from Vehicles?

1/5/2017 8:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Moments after Miles Teller's truck was flipped in a crash, a woman on the scene -- possibly his girlfriend -- called 911 and described the horrific scene.

The operator is, understandably, concerned about victims being ejected from the vehicles involved in the wreck.

TMZ broke the story ... Miles' Bronco flipped on its side on the evening of Dec. 22 ... after an Uber driver cut him off on a wet road in the San Fernando Valley 

The only silver lining -- the operator points out they wrecked right near a fire station.

As we reported -- 2 passengers in the Uber were hospitalized with minor injuries. The accident was NOT Miles' fault.

A California woman claims she hopped in a Lyft with terrifying consequences. She says the driver was DUI, made an illegal left and t-boned another car so fiercely the Lyft rolled. She says she suffered injuries to her chest and ribs.

Get this ... the woman happens to be an Uber driver.  

The woman's lawyer, Paul N. Philips, tells TMZ ... his client had a "trauma-caused heart attack" and was rushed to the hospital by ambulance. 

A Lyft rep tells us the company has a zero-tolerance drug and alcohol policy and has permanently banished the driver.

Miles Teller Truck Flips in Bad Crash

EXCLUSIVE

1223-miles-teller-accident-scene-TMZ-01Miles Teller went upside down Thursday night when his truck hit another car and flipped over ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the actor was driving in the San Fernando Valley late Thursday night when an Uber driver made a left turn in front of Teller, who was driving with his girlfriend. Miles' Bronco flipped over. He was not injured but enraged and got out of the truck screaming, "You f***** up my truck." We're told he was so angry people had to restrain him from attacking the Uber driver.

Our law enforcement sources say the accident was not Miles' fault.  It's clear from the photo the Uber driver made a left when it was unsafe.

An ambulance came and took 2 passengers in the Uber to the hospital after they complained of minor injuries.  An eyewitness says Miles appeared concerned about the 2 injured people.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ drugs or alcohol did not play a factor in the crash.

We're told Teller's put about $200k in the restoring his SUV over the years ... ouch. 

It's interesting ... Miles' 2 biggest movie roles -- "Whiplash" and "Bleed for This" feature his characters getting in a bad car accident. And, when he was 20, he got in a near-fatal car crash.

Desiigner Sued You Crashed Our Ferrari!! That'll Cost Ya $500k

12/6/2016 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1205-desiigner-tmzDesiigner had no business getting behind the wheel of a rented Ferrari, but since he wrecked it when he did, he needs to cough up some dough ... according to the rental company's lawsuit.

The rental company is suing the "Panda" rapper for destroying a 2014 Ferrari back in June. It had been rented by 2 of his friends, who are also named in the suit.

According to docs ... the friends gave Desiigner permission to drive the whip, and then he crashed it in NJ. The car's valued at $220k, but the company's suing for more than $500k because they say they're going to lose out on future rental money -- as in $1,599 per day.

The docs also included a cryptic tweet, supposedly from Desiigner, saying, "If you have a luxury car you better know how to drive." The rental company thinks it's a confession, but we checked and the account doesn't look like it belongs to Desiigner.

We reached out to Desiigner's rep, who tells us ... "This is the first that Desiigner or his team have heard about this lawsuit. The minute he has had a chance to consult with his attorney, his managers or his attorney will respond."

EXCLUSIVE

1121_dennis_rodman_tmz-2Dennis Rodman has just been charged with 4 misdemeanor criminal charges -- including hit-and-run -- stemming from a late-night wrong way freeway crash in July ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The Orange County District Attorney has charged Rodman with ... hit-and-run with property damage, driving a car across the divider, giving false info to a cop and driving a car without a valid license. 

If convicted on all counts, Rodman faces up to 2 years in county jail. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Rodman was driving an SUV on the 5 Freeway around 12:30 AM on July 20th ... after partying at a karaoke bar.

We're told Rodman was driving northbound in the southbound carpool lane.

A car driving the RIGHT way was forced to swerve to avoid a head-on collision and crashed into the center divider. That person called 911.  

Dennis allegedly fled the scene before cops arrived and never exchanged info with the other driver. 

Cops investigated the incident -- and officials say Rodman lied to investigators. 

A rep for Rodman said, "We agree that if anything, this is a misdemeanor traffic matter, and certainly not a felony. We appreciate the district attorney evaluation and know that it should resolve successfully when all facts are considered."
