*A car registered to former E! News host Terrence J was involved in a hit and run accident on Tuesday after witnesses claim his girlfriend, model Jasmine Sanders, lost control of the vehicle and the couple fled the scene.
Now, Terrence is a suspect in the crash that reportedly occurred around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday morning when the sports car slammed into a tree on Ventura Boulevard and damaged a water line near a business.
