Bruce Jenner Causes Fatal Car Crash

In the midst of all his “transitioning” drama, Bruce Jenner now has to deal with a major accident it seems he caused yesterday afternoon while driving out in Malibu, California. A woman is dead after the reality star rear-ended her vehicle, pushing her into oncoming traffic.

Via TMZ:

Bruce Jenner was involved in a horrific car accident on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu at around noon Saturday, one person is dead, and it looks like Bruce caused the accident … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us … there were 4 vehicles involved in the crash. We’re told there were 8 people involved and all sustained some sort of injury … but one person died at the scene.

Eyewitnesses say Bruce rear ended the white car and that car went into oncoming traffic and was struck by the Hummer.

One law enforcement source said Bruce seems to be ok, but again, we’re told the 7 survivors sustained some injuries, ranging from minor to moderate.

Jenner family sources tell TMZ Bruce was being chased by as many as 5 paparazzi at the time of the crash. Bruce told cops he wasn’t drinking and passed a field sobriety test.

We’re told Bruce had picked up his Polaris UTV after loaning it to a wounded veterans group.

Bruce volunteered to go to the hospital to have his blood drawn for blood alcohol testing. He was taken in a Sheriff’s cruiser. We’ve also learned the woman who was killed in the white car was coming to a stop at a red light when Bruce hit her. We’re told law enforcement has already determined Bruce was not speeding.

So sad. As it turns out, the woman who ultimately died at the scene is a neighbor of the Kardashians — according to MailOnline, she has a home in the same community that Kourtney and Rob live in. The 7 others injured include five children and two adults.

In addition, police have a somewhat different version of events. They say that though media photographers were at the scene, no paparazzi were chasing anyone and did not cause the accident. The LAPD is looking into other possibilities for the cause of the tragic crash — including checking phone records to determine if Bruce was actually texting at the time of the incident.
