Bruce Jenner involved in four-car crash in Malibu

Los Angeles County authorities say a woman was killed in the accident on Pacific Coast Highway


MALIBU, Calif. — Olympic gold medallist and Kardashian family patriarch Bruce Jenner was in one of four cars involved in a crash in Malibu that killed a woman, Los Angeles County authorities said Saturday.

Jenner wasn’t hurt, but seven other people suffered minor to moderate injuries in the crash that happened shortly after noon on Pacific Coast Highway, said Art Marrujo, a dispatch supervisor with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Rouzan said Jenner was an occupant of one of the four vehicles. Jenner’s publicist, Alan Nierob, confirmed Jenner wasn’t hurt, but he offered no additional details.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Philip Brooks said Jenner co-operated with investigators, passed a field sobriety test and voluntarily submitted a blood sample to determine whether he was intoxicated.

“He did not appear intoxicated or under the influence of anything at the time,” Brooks said.

Photos of the crash site showed a white Lexus mangled in the front and back, facing a black Hummer with a heavily damaged engine and its hood popped open. A black Escalade that was pulling an off-road vehicle had a damaged front end, and a black Prius appeared to have been rear-ended.

The crash occurred about a mile west of Pepperdine University, on a stretch of road sandwiched between the beach and the Santa Monica Mountains.
