It remained unclear what role paparazzi might have played in the original crash.
Previously: Reality television star and former Olympian Bruce Jenner was involved in a multiple-vehicle car accident in Malibu Saturday that left one person dead, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to TheWrap.
At least seven others suffered minor injuries in the accident, which occurred on Pacific Coast Highway near Corral Canyon Road at 12:12 p.m. Family members said Jenner rear-ended a vehicle on Pacific Coast Highway, the main road along the ocean in Malibu, after being hounded by paparazzi, TMZ reported.
Jenner is the subject of intense media interest as he appears to undergo a gender change from man to woman. He has thus far not commented publicly about the matter.
The vehicle Jenner rear-ended reportedly spiraled into oncoming traffic and was hit by a Hummer, resulting in one female’s death. Jenner, a former Olympian, was seen standing between smashed cars speaking to police.
A rescue helicopter landed at nearby Pepperdine University to pick up at least one of the victims. PCH was closed in both directions as emergency personnel responded to the accident. Several motorists tweeted pictures from the accident scene. The Sheriff’s Department also used Twitter to share updates.
