So scary. Bruce was involved in a horrific car crash on Feb. 7 that cost one person their life, according to a law enforcement official. Seven more were injured, including five children.
Bruce Jenner, 65, was part of a tragic car accident involving four vehicles that left one person dead and seven more injured. The devastating crash took place on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, Calif. on Feb. 7, and a new report claims Bruce may have accidentally prompted the crash by rear-ending a car that was then pushed into oncoming traffic. Was Bruce also hurt as a result of the deadly accident?

Bruce was seemingly unharmed as a result of the crash, but the rest of those involved were not.
“Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal accident. He is alive and well. We don’t know his role in the accident or if he had any role at all at this point. All can tell you is that there was one fatality and the road is going to be closed until later tonight,” Deputy Knott of the Malibu police department tells HollywoodLife.com.
The accident, which occurred around 12 p.m. PT, was reportedly caused when Bruce rear-ended a white Lexus at a red light which then hit a Prius. The Lexus then moved into oncoming traffic and was hit by another car, eyewitnesses told TMZ. The female in the white car died at the scene. Four vehicles total were involved in the accident and seven people have some sort of injury. Five of those injured were children.
Bruce was not speeding at the time the accident occurred, according to the outlet.
Bruce told the cops he was being chased by five paparazzi when the accident occurred, sources told TMZ. He was seen walking around the scene of the accident to try and help in any way he could. He volunteered to do a field sobriety test and passed. He also offered to go to the hospital to have his blood drawn for blood alcohol testing.
It’s not out of the realm of possibility that Bruce was being pursued by paparazzi. Bruce has been the center of the media since reports revealed he’s wanting to transition into a woman.
Police are still investigating what caused the crash.
