Publicist Said Distracted Driving Not a Factor for Jenner in Crash

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in California are continuing to investigate the fatal multi-vehicle wreck that involved former Olympian Bruce Jenner and resulted in the death of 69-year-old Calabasas resident Kim Howe, the San Jose Mercury News reported on February 7.

As part of the investigation, police will likely request the cell phone data of every person involved to determine whether or not distracted driving contributed to the accident. Jenner’s publicist issued a statement that Jenner was not texting when the car accident occurred, and Jenner said he would cooperate by sending his cell phone information to the police.

The wreck occurred on the Pacific Coast Highway, when a Lexus that Jenner’s Cadillac Escalade rear-ended lost control and veered into oncoming traffic.

Jenner also passed a field sobriety test and cooperated with the investigation by submitting a blood sample. All of the vehicles involved will also be inspected for potential defects.
