Via NY Post:
Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal multi-car collision in Malibu, CA, according to Post sources.
One person was dead in the crash, said the sources.
Jenner’s blue Cadillac Escalade suffered damage to its front. A white Lexus and a black Hummer were also damaged.
The accident happened at about noon.
Jenner’s Escalade was towing an off-road dune buggy, said witness Keoni Picerno.
“He was up walking around, and he returned to his car once he realized the severity of the accident,” Picerno said.
Jenner was still at the scene at about 1:30 p.m. California time, said Picerno, a 44-year-old Honolulu resident.
Officials with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed they are investigating a fatal crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, and that lanes of the highway are closed. They would not name those involved.
Initial reports from TMZ indicate Jenner may have been at fault by rear-ending the white car in front of him, which then was hit by oncoming traffic. The woman in the white car is reportedly the casualty.
TMZ reports that Jenner’s family is saying he was being chased by five paparazzi. He was coming from picking up his UTV which he had loaned to a wounded veterans group, according to TMZ. There are pictures of the accident taken at the moment of impact that indicate a tabloid photo service was on site at the moment of the accident, so there may be some truth to that. We wouldn’t be publishing those pictures.
According to authorities, there’s no indication Bruce Jenner was being chased by paparazzi who were nearby when the SUV he was driving became involved in a four-vehicle crash that killed a woman.
According to The Olympian:
Five people were taken to the hospital for evaluation after the crash that happened shortly after noon on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Philip Brooks.
The moment of impact was captured by celebrity photographers who quickly posted the images on the Internet, but Philips said there was no evidence Jenner was trying to get away from them.
“PCH is a straight road. There’s no place to go to evade,” Brooks said. “Being a celebrity, he’s often followed by the paparazzi and he’s aware of that. He was on his way home, and they happen to know his route.”
