Michael Jackson‘s children were involved in a collision yesterday, Oct. 21 when a photographer allegedly smashed into an Escalade which was part of their convoy, but didn’t hold Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket.

TMZ reports the children’s nanny Grace Rwaramba was driving the children — who are living with their grandmother Katherine Jackson — to karate class when the paparazzi gave chase, hitting a security car that was escorting MJ’s offspring.

Police say a hit-and-run report was taken on the scene around 2.20pm PMT near the crash site in Sherman Oaks, which is close to the Jackson compound in Encino. It is currently under investigation.

Witnesses told TMZ the Jackson car fled the scene after impact. In California, leaving the scene of an accident without exchanging information is a crime.

Meanwhile, Joe Jackson says he spoke with his wife Katherine, 79, and the kids are fine.
