"None of what was in the vehicle was [Jackson's] obviously".
According to a police write-up obtained by NFL.com, the driver of this vehicle fled the scene before authorities arrived. The police impounded the vehicle.
In a statement to NFL Network, Jackson's spokesperson said he let a friend borrow his vehicle.
Jackson's spokeswoman says he let a friend borrow the auto. "He's dealing with the person that was using it without his knowledge privately", EAG Sports Management's Denise White told NFL Network.
Jackson was contacted by police and responded to the scene. "The incident is being handled".More news: Jose Mourinho doubles down and hits out at Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea

Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht also released a statement, saying, "We are aware of a one-car accident involving a vehicle registered to DeSean Jackson on the night of December 24".
No arrests have been made regarding the crash, but Jackson will be subjected to an investigation by the National Football League, American sports website Sporting News reported. "Our understanding is that DeSean has been in contact with authorities and is cooperating with the investigation". Jackson allegedly declined to cooperate at first. The team sits at 4-11 heading into its season finale against New Orleans on Sunday and Jackson himself is now in the midst of what would be the worst season of his career.
Jackson reportedly did not accompany the Bucs to that game, as he was out with an ankle injury he had suffered the previous week.
Jackson has 50 catches for 668 yards this season, but only three touchdowns, and his average of 13.4 yards per catch is a career low.
The Buccaneers did play in Carolina on the day in question.
