Former Olympian Bruce Jenner was in one of the cars involved in a four-car crash that killed one woman in Malibu, Calif., Saturday afternoon, Los Angeles Police say. Seven other people sustained minor to moderate injuries.
Jenner’s publicist, Alan Nierob, says Jenner was unhurt, but offered no additional details.
Police deputies added that Jenner was not being chased by paparazzi at the time, contrary to earlier reports.
The crash occurred at approximately 12:12 pm Pacific time in the town of Malibu, at the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Corral Canyon Road, said Sgt. Matthew Dunn of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Jenner was going north when his black Cadillac Escalade rear-ended a Lexus sedan that had just struck the back of a black Toyota Prius, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Philip Brooks said. The Lexus veered into oncoming traffic in a southbound lane and collided head-on with a black Hummer.
The driver of the Lexus — a woman in her 70s — was pronounced dead at the scene.
Dunn said the crash is currently under investigation.
Jenner cooperated with investigators, passed a field sobriety test and voluntarily submitted a blood sample to determine whether he was intoxicated, according to Brooks.
