Dennis Rodman was driving the WRONG WAY on a California freeway during a July 20th crash ... and then FLED the scene ... officials say.
TMZ Sports broke the story ... Rodman was being investigated for hit-and-run after witnesses told the California Highway Patrol they believed the NBA great was driving a white SUV that crashed on the 5 Freeway around 12:30 AM.
CHP investigators now believe Rodman WAS behind the wheel -- and was traveling northbound while in the southbound carpool lane that night.
Officials say the driver of a BMW swerved to avoid a head-on collision and hit the center divider. Rodman allegedly left the scene.
Multiple sources tell us ... Rodman was at a karaoke bar in the hours before the crash. We're guessing officials want to find out if he was drinking.
TMZ Sports obtained a photo of Rodman at the bar earlier that night holding car keys in his hand.
CHP investigators are recommending Orange County prosecutors should move forward with charges against Rodman.
