More details have surfaced about the deadly car accident that Bruce Jenner was involved in yesterday.
Police have ruled out the possible involvement of paparazzi in Saturday’s fatal crash.
It had been reported that Bruce Jenner was being chased by paparazzi on Saturday afternoon along a Californian highway when he rear-ended another vehicle and caused an accident involving three cars. But police have confirmed this was not the case.
“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.
“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.”
According to CBS news, the white Lexus that Bruce rear-ended stopped abruptly on the highway. Bruce allegedly tried to swerve, but could not avoid hitting the Lexus, pushing the car into oncoming traffic. The driver of the Lexus died at the scene.
Police are now investigating whether Bruce Jenner was using his phone at the time of the accident. Los Angeles police are securing a search warrant to see if Bruce was texting while driving.
