Paramedic Jamin Mauro – whose ambulance was side-swiped by Jackson’s Cadillac Escalade outside Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles –is going to the hospital himself today to get his whiplash injuries checked-out.

Mauro is furious that “The King Of Pop” showed no concern for his well-being, or his partner, and simply sped away from the scene as the paparazzi swarmed all around.

Worse still, Jackson’s driver didn’t even take the time to exchange insurance details with Mauro or take any responsibility for his part in the accident.

Beverly Hills Police are still investigating the incident that took place on Wednesday around 3:20pm.
