Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal car accident on Saturday in Malibu, California and one woman wound up dead as a result. Now, we’ve learned that the police department has obtained video footage of the accident.
When the news of Bruce Jenner’s car crash first came to light, some speculated that the former Olympian was possibly texting and may have caused the accident himself. The authorities obtained pictures of Jenner prior to the crash and they showed him holding something in his hand. The item was later identified in another picture as a cigarette. Even still, Jenner offered up his phone records as proof that he wasn’t using his cell phone at all while on the highway.
After the accident, Bruce Jenner issued the following statement. He said, “My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident. It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible.”
The video footage that the police have obtained shows the accident just seconds after the impact and it could be a critical piece of evidence for those investigating the crash.
The Sheriff’s department is currently hunting down anyone who would’ve witnessed the accident. They are seeking out information on whether or not the Prius was stopped behind a long line of cars that were waiting for the light to turn green or if the car was trying to make an illegal U-turn. The video footage along with eyewitness testimony could establish who was at fault for the crash – causing the Lexus driver to die.
TMZ reports that Bruce Jenner was not being chased by the paparazzi – something that sources close to the Olympian’s family claimed.
Perhaps the authorities will release the Bruce Jenner accident footage for the public to see? We highly doubt it, but two heads (or in this case, millions of heads) are always better than one. What do you think?
