No Paparazzi Excuses For Bruce Jenner Crash That Killed Woman

It’s not looking so good for for Olympian and reality star Bruce Jenner as his excuse for rear ending a woman was photographers chasing him. I don’t know why he would have said that as it’s being reported the woman in a white Prius slammed the brakes and there are signs that Jenner braked hard trying to avoid hitting her. Jenner was the third car in the multiple rear-end collision, according to police. Five people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Los Angeles authorities have said there is no evidence that Bruce Jenner was being chased by paparazzi which caused his involvement in a fatal car accident, CNN reported today.

We reported yesterday that members of the Jenner family had contacted TMZ telling them that paparazzi pursuing the Olympian gold medalist has precipitated the crash.

“As of right now, there is no indication that Bruce Jenner was being chased by paparazzi at the time of the crash,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Lecrivain said.

“There was a possibility that paparazzi was following him at the time of the crash, but that is a very regular occurrence, and (there is) no indication at this time it was a contributing factor of the crash.”

Eyewitnesses told police that Jenner rear ended the white car ahead of him causing it to go into incoming traffic where it was then struck by a Hummer. The woman driving this car has died.

Now that it is appearing to be Jenner’s fault, fans are wondering if this could lead to jail time for the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star. There has been much media scrutiny surrounding him as he made it official that he’s transitioning from a man to a woman.

Criminal defense attorney James E. Silverstein spoke out regarding the possibility that Jenner will be facing jail time due to negligence in the accident, revealing:

“Bruce Jenner has put himself in a tough spot. He has admitted driving a vehicle which struck another vehicle, causing at least one death and several other serious injuries. He has apparently told the Sheriff’s Department that he was not driving under the influence and was attempting to flee paparazzi who were on his tail.”

Silverstein reveals that because of the seriousness of the collision, the case will certainly be investigated to determine the degree of charges that could be held against the former Olympian.

Silverstein stresses that vehicular manslaughter will most likely be the charge filed against Jenner, revealing that it could either be “a misdemeanor or a felony,” depending on the degree of negligence determined, which can result in up to six years in prison.

The attorney concludes that if the investigating department determines Jenner “acted negligently or grossly negligent in evading pursuing paparazzi,” that it’s likely he will be facing some sort of legal punishment for his actions.

Jenner was on his way back from picking up his Polaris UTV at a wounded veterans group he had loaned it to.

There will obviously be more to this story as the days go on, and we’ll report to you what we find out.
