According to Los Angeles’ County Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Matthew Dunn, Bruce was an occupant in one of the three vehicles that crashed in the city of Malibu on the Pacific Coast Highway in which one person was killed, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Matthew Dunn. At that time, he was driving a black Cadillac SUV that was the third vehicle involved in a multiple read-end collision. The accident occurred on a tricky stretch of the highway, where the road is narrow and twisting.
Celebrity website TMZ showed photos of Jenner standing at the scene of the collision, as seen below:
At first, it was widely believed that Bruce was being chased by photographers, which led to the crash. However, CNN reported that authorities said there is no evidence he was being chased by photographers.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Lecrivain said:
As of right now, there is no indication that Bruce Jenner was being chased by paparazzi at the time of the crash. There was a possibility that paparazzi was following him at the time of the crash, but that is a very regular occurrence, and (there is) no indication at this time it was a contributing factor of the crash.
The sheriff’s department said on its Facebook page that the surviving drivers were cooperating with investigators while a deputy said Bruce voluntarily took a field sobriety test, was questioned, and went home. 5 children and 2 adults were hospitalised with injuries, and the person who was killed was not immediately identified.
