TMZ shows photos of the car Manziel was a passenger in - a Mercedes-Benz S550-  when it slammed into a pole in Hollywood on April 9th at around 10:45pm.  

Fortunately, no one in the car was hurt, despite the front of the car being absolutely smashed beyond repair.

The alleged driver, Manziel's friend Ryan Silverstein, is being investigated by the LAPD on hit-and-run charges.  Manziel and SIlverstein  fled the scene and were picked up Cleveland Browns wide receiver, Josh Gordon (Manziel was released by the Browns last month).

According to TMZ, the car hit the pole with such force that every air bag in the car went off.  

Earlier that evening, Manziel and a few friends went out to The Nice Guy, and the former Texas A&M player left behind the same baseball hat he wore to the club that was left in the car post-accident.

The two, however, returned to the scene, where cops were already investigating.  TMZ reports that witnesses ID'd Silverstein because of his "recognizable beard."

At this time, Manziel has not been accused of any wrongdoing, nor is Gordon.

Silverstein is a good friend of Drake's and used to date Pretty Little Liars's Shay Mitchell.
