Bruce Jenner Involved in Fatal Car Crash

Bruce Jenner Makes a Statement About His Fatal Car Crash

One person died in a car accident involving Bruce Jenner on Saturday, according to reports. People reported that Bruce's rep said he was not injured in the crash, while authorities confirmed five others sustained injuries and were sent to the hospital. The former Olympian was driving in Malibu, CA, when the crash happened. Pictures taken on the scene show three vehicles — Bruce's Cadillac Escalade, a white Lexus, and a black Hummer — on a stretch of Pacific Coast Highway, which runs parallel to the California coastline.

In a new statement to Us Weekly, Bruce said, "My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident." He also added, "It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible."

While the LA County Sheriff's Department said the cause of the accident is under investigation, a witness reportedly said it didn't look like Bruce was responsible for the collision. Meanwhile, authorities could not confirm a report that Bruce was given a sobriety test. The incident follows up recent reports that Bruce is transitioning into a woman, which he might address in an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer and an E! docuseries.
