Witnesses allege Jenner may have been on his phone texting. Police are investigating the claim checking Bruce Jenner’s phone records to establish if Jenner was the cause of the accident. If correct, Jenner could face manslaughter charges.
Jenner has recently made news in his intention to change gender from a man to a woman. It’s not yet established if Jenner is currently being referred to as a woman or man. His gender change would have no impact on any charges against Jenner if they are filed. Jenner has been cooperative at the scene taking a sobriety test which he passed. He also agreed to immediately have his blood tested to rule out alcohol.
According to witnesses Jenner’s vehicle was the cause of the four car accident that injured seven and resulted in one death at the scene. It’s claimed that Jenner’s SUV rear ended a vehicle which then swerved into oncoming traffic and those vehicles took the most damage and injuries.
Jenner claimed he was being pursued by paparazzi and while some press has reported this is not evident, TMZ has frame-by-frame images leading up to the impact. It looks like a small fender bender until you realize the car Jenner hits is indeed headed over the center line of the roadway where it tragically ended the life of a female driver.
This is unconfirmed, but a Jason Hodson of Ontario California did comment on a TMZ video of the accident scene through his Facebook account the following:
I and a friend were the bikers who were helping the lady, trying to save her life and not one pperson else tried. We tried to open the car door, and was feeling for a pulse, I got in the back of the car and held her neck, so that her airway could be open. I am disguisted thatnot one other person tried to help. I am glad I did the right thing and my friend also. I am sure everyone when they are in an accident want help, but no one is willing to help others in need. We felt this lady slip away, we told her someone was there and we are trying to help, she knew she was not alone, so if any of her family get to read this, I can be reached at 951-(redacted), name is Jason Amundson Hodson. We truly tried, but sorry we could not help more. I am sure she is loved.
It puts the entire accident in perspective. One moment you are heading home for dinner, and in an instant your life is over.
