Bruce Jenner was reportedly involved in a fatal car crash on Saturday afternoon in Malibu, California. The 65-year-old former Olympian and star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians didn’t appear to be seriously injured in the incident on the Pacific Coast Highway, according to eye witnesses, but the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department has confirmed that at least one person died in the accident.
The Sheriff’s department tweeted: “Fatal Traffic Collision: 1212pm. 26000 blk Pacific Coast Hwy at Corral Cyn Malibu PCH Closed both directions.”
Three cars and eight people were involved in the incident, with at least one fatality, gossip website TMZ has reported.
What’s more, it’s been claimed that everyone involved in the crash sustained an injury of some kind.
One eyewitness tweeted: “Bruce Jenner in bad accident on PCH in Malibu. He’s aight, but others involved not so much. (sic)”
Meanwhile, Bruce – who is currently going through a gender transition – has been implored to speak about the issue by Zoey Tur, a leader in the LA transgender community.
She said: “We need our role models and there’s no greater role model than the world’s greatest athlete.
“What’s the big deal? Many feel that gender is pitched in the reality show and using this build-up to gain more momentum and get paid to do an interview. This is a civil rights battle. This is not about selling TV shows. This is about saving lives.”
