Michael Jackson's 88-year-old father Joe has been taken to hospital following a car crash in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas police said the Jackson family patriarch was a passenger in a car which was struck by another vehicle attempting a left-turn west of the Strip, just after 11am local time on Friday.

Mr Jackson, who has lived in Las Vegas for many years, was taken to University Medical Centre for observation after complaining of injury.

Police said the driver of the other vehicle was cited for failing to give right of way.

Pop megastar Michael Jackson, 50, died in Los Angeles in June 2009.
