In all fairness, if you are a 65 year old man who is mentally disturbed enough to deform yourself in a futile attempt to look like a woman, you might be doing a lot of drinking, too. Hopefully, you wouldn’t get behind the wheel though. Did Jenner? We don’t know for sure, but he did supposedly pass his sobriety test.
Bruce Jenner was spotted taking a roadside sobriety test just moments after he was involved in a four-car horror crash which left one person dead and seven others injured.
Jenner, 65, smashed his Cadillac Escalade into the back of the victim’s white Lexus, which was then pushed into the path of a Hummer, leaving the vehicle a crumpled wreck and the sole occupant dead.
The Olympic gold medalist and Kardashian family patriarch, who escaped the crash unscathed, took a roadside sobriety test in front of officers in the wake of the horrific collision, which he passed, while his son Brody rushed to comfort him at the scene.
The victim, although not yet formally identified by police, has been named locally as 69-year-old Kim Howe, who is believed to be a neighbor of the Kardashians.
It is believed Ms Howe, a widow, lives in the same Calabasas hideaway as Kourtney, Robert and Khloe Kardashian, which is guarded by security at the road entrance.
Five children – and two adults – were also hospitalized in the fatal smash which occurred just after midday on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, Los Angeles.
…Photographs emerged today showing the moment the victim’s car was rear-ended by Jenner’s black Cadillac Escalade, which was towing a dune buggy at the time of the crash.
…According to witnesses, who described the pile-up to TMZ, he smashed into the back of the Lexus around midday, pushing the vehicle into oncoming traffic.
Sources told the celebrity news site that the Lexus driver was slowing down when she was hit – and that Jenner was not speeding.
…It was reportedly struck by a Hummer, causing the fatal smash. Police said four cars were involved in the crash, which injured five minors.
Exclusive photos from the scene obtained by dailymail.com showed one small baby being handed to paramedics from its mother’s arms – it is believed the child was the crash’s youngest victim and is just one-month-old.
This is so sad in so many different ways.
Bruce Jenner’s days of being a “role model” are long behind him. Now, he’s stuck in the “people can learn from his bad example” stage.
Update: Some of the details of the story are different depending on where you go, but Jenner does appear to have been driving the car. From TMZ.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. will get a search warrant to determine if Bruce Jenner was texting at the time he slammed into a car, causing the driver to die … TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, they will get warrants for both Bruce’s phone records and the cellphone itself. It’s illegal to text while driving in California and if Bruce was texting Saturday when he struck a car on PCH in Malibu, authorities could charge him with vehicular manslaughter.
The photos we posted showing Bruce in the car immediately before impact do no reveal what if anything he’s holding. It appears he might be clutching something in his left hand but it’s unclear.
Even if he was texting, our sources say proving he was doing it at exactly the moment of the crash could be difficult or even impossible.
Our law enforcement sources also tell us they’re positive Bruce tried to avoid the accident. The tires on his trailer produced significant skid marks and at the last minute Bruce veered to the right, causing the Lexus to swing left into oncoming traffic. A Hummer struck the Lexus, killing the Lexus driver.
