A McLaren sports car reportedly registered to the former host of BET’s “106 & Park” crashed into a parking meter in Studio City early Tuesday and the occupants left the scene, according to authorities and a celebrity news website.
The crash was reported about 2:30 a.m. in the 11000 block of Ventura Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
According to TMZ.com, the $200,000 sports car, which was totaled, was registered to Terrence Jenkins, who was a passenger, and was being driven by Jenkins’ girlfriend Jasmine Sanders, neither of whom remained at the scene.
“Witnesses say Jasmine Sanders was behind the wheel and he was the passenger … and they both took off after the wreck,” TMZ reported.
Jenkins, better known as Terrence J, was the host of BET’s popular music video countdown show before becoming a co-host of “E! News.” He also appeared in the films “Think Like a Man” and “Think Like a Man Too.”
