Exclusive 1119_jake_austin_crash_photos_launchJake T. Austin — who starred as Max Russo on the hit Disney show “Wizards of Waverly Place” — is involved in a bizarre 4-car hit-and-run crash this morning … and our sources has the pics.

Here”s what we know — a 2010 Audi with NY plates slammed into 3 parked cars on a street in Sherman Oaks, CA around 3AM Tuesday morning.  The cars suffered major damage.

According to an official incident report, obtained by our sources, the Audi is registered to 18-year-old Austin (real name Jake Szymanski).  It”s unclear if Austin was driving the car at the time of the wreck.


Witnesses tell our sources … after the driver hit the parked cars, someone in the ride threw a bottle of Ciroc at a nearby property.  One witness tells us the driver and his passengers called a black car service to come pick them up before cops arrived to the scene.

Once officers arrived, they saw the wrecked Audi, along with the path of destruction — but no Jake —  and issued a document to one of the people who suffered damage, which explained that the incident was being handled as a hit-and-run.

The document also shows the Audi is registered to Austin.

We spoke with cops — who tell us they”re currently investigating the situation. So far, no arrests have been made.
