The car he was driving, a Mercedes AMG CLS, was completely destroyed as a result of the crash. One witness told TMZ that Marcus went down 200 feet from the main road.
It is understood that a female companion was in the car with Marcus and she was also hospitalized.
Marcus, who regularly shoots for Kim, Kanye and other members of the Kardashian family, is a seasoned car aficionado.
He has scheduled night drives with high-end exotic cars on Sunday nights.
His condition is unknown at this time, but a law enforcement source told TMZ he suffered a critical head injury.
Originally from Virginia, Hyde has built a reputation as one of the most talented young photographers since moving to Los Angeles five years ago.
He’s taken photos with artists like Childish Gambino, Chance the Rapper, and Jhené Aiko.

Hyde took pictures of Kim Kardashian recreating Bo Derek’s iconic look from the 1979 film, 10, shooting the images near Kim’s Malibu home.
After the beach, they booked a ‘dirty, grungy’hotel for additional photos to round out the shoot, and within hours Hyde’s polaroids were everywhere.
Kanye West even called with his stamp of approval and asked if Hyde wanted to work with him on future projects.

Marcus posted a picture saying he had fun working with Kim during her Bo Derek inspired shoot on Malibu beach for which she spent hours braiding hair
‘The braids are identical to the beads from the Bo Derek photo shoot,” Hyde says. ‘That’s what Kim wanted. She stayed up all night getting her hair braided for hours., told the pop culture publication Complex.
It was a quick, spur-of-the-moment shoot. There wasn’t a whole lot of planning, but it came out really amazing. I definitely think it broke the internet’.
Hyde also spoke glowingly about Kardashian, saying she is the best subject he ever worked with.

He added: ‘Obviously, she knows in the back of her head that people may say this about the shoot or that about the shoot.
‘But that’s literally anything. She could do a photo shoot dressed in all black and people would be like, ‘Oh, why is she wearing all black?’ There will always be people who are reaching’.
‘It was easy to work on because I didn’t feel pressure with a huge production,’ he said. ‘She was literally the coolest person I’ve ever worked with, and I’m not just saying that to kiss ass or whatever. She was so easy to work with’.
He said a mutual friend knew Kanye West and he had enquired about his work. Kim then contacted Marcus and the two had a long conversation about the Bo Derek shoot.
