Bruce Jenner

Reality television star, Bruce Jenner, 65, was involved in a deadly car accident on Saturday. The horrifying car accident happened on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California. Reportedly, Bruce was being chased by paparazzi when he rear-ended a white Lexus, forcing the vehicle into oncoming traffic, causing the Lexus to be struck head on by a Hummer.

The female driver of the white Lexus was killed on impact and the crash caused a multi vehicle collision. Reports claim five people are injured. The extent of their injuries are unknown. Bruce was not injured.

Bruce told officers on the scene he was being chased by paparazzi just prior to the accident. He said he had not been drinking and he offered to take a field sobriety test.

This accident could not have happened at a worst time for the former Olympian. He is currently in transition from male to female and reportedly undergoing hormone therapy to prepare for transgender surgery. Reports claim Bruce will change his name post surgery to “Belinda.” Diane Sawyer has an upcoming exclusive sit down with Jenner to discussion his transition.

Our prayers are with the families of the deceased and injured.

    Involved? He caused it. Bet the cell phone records will prove interesting.

    • ButterflyArtGuild

      I think a car up ahead of the white car crashed first. It caused the white car to stop.

        They were stopped at a red light, when Bruce impacted the white car in front of him & pushed it into oncoming traffic, where it was hit head-on by a Hummer..

    @JustTheFactsNJ: Bruce Jenner involved in a fatal car accident – that’s what happens when you transition into a female driver.

  • Norrth

    ;((( My heart goes out to the family of the woman killed. One small moment and can be incredibly tragic. I don’t understand why paps are allowed to chase, harass, blind drivers while taking photos, etc. Sadly, Jenner has always seemed like a private person who hated having cameras around 24/7. The notoriety of the show has been an epic fail for him and just seems to have turned his life inside out. I don’t know how anyone survives being responsible for something like this.

  • Anne Green

    This is such a tragedy! My condolences to the family of the women who lost her life. I wish those that were injured the most speedy recovery. For Bruce Jenner to even insinuate that the paparazzi are to blame is disgusting. He and his family are who they are because of the paparazzi. This is how they make their living. They are ALL famewhores. The media is making this about Bruce Jenner being “involved” and “unhurt”…….he is the cause of this fatality!! As a result of his negligent actions, that white Lexus was forced into oncoming traffic causing that women’s death. I am happy to hear that a vehicular homicide investigation is being conducted. In some ways I have felt sorry for Bruce Jenner. For years he has clearly had severe psychological issues and seems to have lost his way. I don’t watch or follow anything pertaining to the Kartrashians. Much the same as I wouldn’t watch a freak show at the circus. My only question is why after living 65 years as a man would anyone want to transgender to a women? If I had to guess, I would say it’s about fame and money for his retirement years.

    • Marsbars09

      Anne, I’ve been wondering the same thing. Apparently Bruce has been feeling like a woman for a long time. He marries three different women, sires 6 or 7 children, and at this time in his life decides to transition into a female?
      And the Kartrashians court the paparazzi for publicity, not the other way around.

  • So Bruce takes a life and walks. This is disturbing and wrong on many levels. My condolences to the woman that died & her family.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Horrific for the poor family of the woman killed. I just don’t understand how anyone justifies driving at speed to get away from paparazzi – it’s only a friggin photograph for gods sake!!

    • Marsbars09

      Thank you! Now it’s a life or death situation. :/

  • Dave

    There’s no running from paparazzi or any vehicle on Pacific Coast highway, he’s lying. Also, he be would have a difficult time speeding away from the paps while towing a trailer with an all-terrain vehicle. I think the hormones may have Bruce’s mind confused.

    • Marsbars09

      And also, is it even possible to speed on the PCH? That road always seems so congested.

  • September24

    New reports say they are checking to see if he was texting while driving. Uh-oh!

    • Yolie

      I believe that’s likely. Makes more sense than being chased by the paps on a winding highway.

  • Marsbars09

    This is the last thing Bruce needs on his conscious-the probable demise of someone else’s life.
    My condolences to the family of the woman who lost her life.

    • Morning Marsie. It’s very tragic 🙁

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Hi Marsie. Happy Sunday Hon. Hope you are having a great day.

      This is sad.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    What a waste. Bruce needs to do some time behind bars.

    • Naws!!! How are you honey? Nice to see you posting! 🙂

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Good to see you to my sweets!!! Seems a little slow for such a newsy day!!!

        • I would imagine many read the story yesterday when it happened. I don’t think the paps were chasing him. He’s lying.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Does he think he is Princess Di??? Come on, who would be “chasing” this jerk????

          • EXACTLY!! He’s a liar and full of shit. I loss my respect for him long ago. Now this.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Hi Seussie! Happy Sunday Lovey.
        This is sad.

        • Morning my lovely Tiger! 🙂

          This is awful. That poor lady woke up that morning and had no clue Bruce Jenner would cause her death. He was probably looking at his stupid phone when he rammed her car. So sad!!!! 🙁

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            There are actually photos of him seconds before he impacts this poor womans car. & Photos of him actually hitting the car, but you can’t see if he has anything in his hand.
            Unfortunately you take your life in your hands everyday when you drive because of either your carelessness or someone else’s.
            I was hit by a van, doing about 40-50 mph while stopped at a red light, because the driver anticipated that the light was going to change to green before it did. We were pushed out into on coming traffic. Thankfully no one was coming & no one was crossing. & even more thankful that my son was not hurt!

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Hi Naws! How are you my little muffin? Hope all is well. Missed you!

      I do believe he was being chased. There are actually photos of the impact. I don’t think that is a legit excuse to drive like an azz though. I think he was driving distracted, either because of the paps or he was maybe texting. Idk, but there are at least 3 or 4 photos of him actually hitting the white car in front of him.
      So sad.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Someone is dead and their family is devasted–He (She) needs to pay!!

        • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

          If it was a ‘true’ accident, then I disagree. Chit happens.

          BUT if he was trying to elude the paps. (& how he could have done that on PCH is beyond me.), or if he was driving while distracted, (texting), then yes I agree. It is truly his fault then.

          • And he was towing something…just not possible.

          • WestCoastFeed

            And by California law it is his fault. He is the one who was not driving safely enough to stop.

          • That’s good to hear. I remember when Brandi Norwood caused a similar accident that resulted in the death of a woman. Brandi was under investigation and ending up paying the victims family.

    • I really hope he’s charged with vehicular homicide.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        If it were my family member who was killed, I would be looking for some kind of time to be served in jail.

    • cait

      If he /she still has a dingle-dongle, then has to go to BOYS CLUB, would not get his transgender meds, and might have to be kept in seg !

  • WestCoastFeed

    Tragic and no escaping that it was his fault. Will he have enough sense to lay low now and spare us from the story of his sex change? Probably not, he began his Olympic career exploiting himself.

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    My condolences to the the family of the woman who lost her life.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    PCH is a highway where a lot of movie stars hang out and there are lots of folks just looking. Why anyone would be speeding along this busy part of the highway is beyond me.

    • Dave

      They wouldn’t be speeding. Bruce is not being honest.

  • Dave

    I can’t believe Bruce expects the police and public to buy his lies.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Believe it!!!!! Her (His) ego is beyond measure!!

      • Dave

        I’m sure he’ll blame the hormones next and after that Kris Kardashian. Watch and see, it’s coming.

    • WestCoastFeed

      I’m seeing reports that Bruce never blamed paps and that story might have been spin disseminated by the Kardashian PR machine.

      • Dave

        I doubt that because many media outlets including CNN said Bruce blamed the paps. Those were the initial reports that would not have given the Kartrashians time to spin it.

  • Orlando Chan

    Belinda??? Couldn’t he pick a better name?

    • noarguingwithstupid

      I wonder why also!!!!! Loser

      • WestCoastFeed

        I rooted against him back when he was competing in the Olympics. His self-absorption and exploitation was that obvious even then.

        • Dave

          Makes sense why he and Kris hooked up then.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          I fed into all of the medals. I’m a jerk sometimes!!!

          • WestCoastFeed

            You were just a kid back then. That Hollywood haircut he had was too much for me,

          • noarguingwithstupid

            “Just a kid”!!!!!! You are soooooooo sweet!!!!

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            No denying that he was a champion & he worked hard for that success.
            There may be some who don’t like his attitude or him personally or whatever but the dude won a gold medal & that ain’t easy.
            No one can take that from him. He did it.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I agree!!

          • Birdie

            He made it on a Wheaties box after all…hey T-Lily!

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Hi’ya Birdie. Happy Sunday.
            Yes he did. Whether you like him or not as a person, he did accomplish an amazing feat. & he worked very hard for it.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes, and a complete jerk the whole time.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            I get it WCF. You don’t like him. Never did & never will. I get it. While I’m not a fan, I don’t dislike him either. Mho on Bruce. Meh.
            But it does take talent, drive & dedication to win an Olympic medal, nevermind a gold one & I have to give him his props on that. That’s all.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Brucecinda would have been a good one.

    • Dave

      How could Kris not have known? Who thinks the transition is a big publicity stunt?

      • I1ST5XS

        Exactly, this whole transgender thing is a hoax for TV and money!

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Incredibly tragic story. My condolences to the victims.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    How old IS Bruce Jenner now?? Anyone know?

    • Yolie

      65

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Thank you!!!!

        • Yolie

          No problem!

  • Birdie

    How is being chased by paps a legit excuse? Even if it’s true, they weren’t trying to gun him down, and it’s still on HIM to drive responsibly. That is NO excuse.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Exactly. He’ll be charged. Probably vehicular manslaughter.

  • cait

    Do you remember that brat who mowed down, and killed several people ? He used entitlement as his defence, and it worked in court !

    • Flanagan

      Yes, it was “affluenza”, a term coined especially for that charming young man.

      • cait

        Thanks, I’d forgotten that word ! Another little tosser !
        How come Justin (nappies) Bieber has 7 crimes, at least, against him, yet never gets prosecuted !

        • Flanagan

          He has enough cash to pay his enabling attorneys to plead down his cases. Just so disgusting.

          • misstc

            Yeah, let’s not forget LaLindseyLow LOL

          • Flanagan

            Oh Lord have mercy, she is such a wreck. What a shame. She was so cute in The Parent Trap. She doesn’t seem to have any incentive to get her life back together either.

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Are you talking about the “Affluenza” kid Cait?
      That absolutely infuriated me! Almost as good as the SOB that killed little Katie Flynn in 2008 & tried to say he was sooooooooo drunk, so incapacitated there was no way he could have made a responsible decision NOT to drive & therefore is NOT guilty.
      Low-life muther phuckers!

  • Flanagan

    There have been reports saying that traffic was moving slowly, but for Bruce Jenner’s vehicle to have pushed the Lexus into oncoming traffic, he had to have been going at a pretty high rate of speed. A lot of people (myself included) don’t always keep the proper distance away from the car in front while driving but if you have your eyes on the road, and are not , but I can’t help but wonder if he WAS distracted by texting, or simply HUA. If it is proven that he was texting, he more than likely will face jail, or even prison time.

    A small rant: There is NOTHING that is so important, while a person is driving, that a cell phone can’t be put away so all attention can be paid to the road in front of you. How many times have we all been sitting at a red light, and when it turns green, the idiot in the car in front just sits there, and has to be blasted by your car horn to get their attention, and yes, they were texting.

    • misstc

      My last trek to my Dr. was 50 miles on FL expressway; all going at average of 70 mph. Out of about 6 vehicles who were lane weaving, accelerating/decelerating, all six were on their phones, texting! They have only recently passed a law that a PO can stop w/o any other cause people suspected of texting. IMHO, texting while driving is worse than DUI!

      • Flanagan

        Agree 100%. Car and Driver magazine did a study in 2010, which did indeed show that texting when driving had a worst impact than driving while drunk.
        In California, where I live, talking and texting while driving is illegal, but you CAN look at your GPS map on your phone while driving. Wouldn’t that be considered a distraction? I guess not. And get this: The fine for texting while driving is $20. Yes. Twenty Dollars. That’ll teach em!

  • WestCoastFeed

    TMZ supposedly has pictures that show Bruce smoking, not texting.

  • Dave

    This article should read, “disgraced” former Olympian. The Olympic committee should revoke his medals.

  • colleen

    Lots of interesting comments. Can’t see why Olympic Committee should strip him of his titles. Bruce wasn’t on hormone therapy back then. Don’t understand why he felt the need to be married and procreate if he knew he was transgender.
    That Kardashian clan!!! here is one time I can say the grass is not always greener
