Previous reports that Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, was hospitalized with a broken ankle after a car accident involving a paparazzi remain unsubstantiated by police.
As previously reported, Grant’s boyfriend Mark Phillips told TMZ Wednesday that an alleged “paparazzi confrontation” forced them to swerve their car into a concrete barrier near a toll booth in Florida. The embattled half-sister of the soon-to-be wife of Prince Harry even shared an image of her in the hospital.
However, police in Florida tell Fox News that they’ve been unable to find any record of such an event taking place despite citizens being legally obligated to call 911 in the event of a car accident in which there was property damage.
Lieutenant Kim Montes, a spokeswoman for Florida Highway Patrol Troop D, told Fox News that her office checked five different troops stretching from Tampa to Jacksonville and found no evidence of a crash or any report indicating that Grant and Phillips’ story actually took place. She even coordinated with Michelle Guido, spokesperson from Orlando Police Department, who also came up with nothing in terms of proving the story Grant detailed to TMZ was true.
