The reality TV star extends his "deepest sympathies" to the family of the woman who died in a car crash he allegedly caused.
Bruce Jenner was able to walk away uninjured from a fatal three-car accident he apparently caused in Malibu, Calif. on Saturday (Feb 7th), but another female driver tragically died as a result of the collision.
Jenner extends "deepest sympathies" to victim's family
At approximately 12:12 p.m. on the Pacific Coast Highway on Saturday afternoon, the reality TV star's SUV reportedly rear-ended the victim's car, which then spun into oncoming and was struck by another vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
"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," Jenner said in a statement. "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."
The former Olympian allegedly told police that he was being chased by the paparazzi at the time of the crash, but investigators have concluded there is no evidence of any photographers present around the crash site.
"As of right now, there is no indication that Bruce Jenner was being chased by paparazzi at the time of the crash," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Lt. John Lecrivain said on Sunday (Feb 8th).
According to TMZ, shortly after the incident Jenner volunteered to have his blood taken at the hospital to test for traces of alcohol.
The cause of the crash is still unknown.
