LOS ANGELES: Reality TV star and former Olympic champion Bruce Jenner is praying for the victims of a deadly car crash he was involved in, and vowed to cooperate with the investigation into the “terrible” accident.
A woman was killed and several people injured in the collision on Saturday involving four cars on the Pacific Coast Highway in the Los Angeles metro area, according to US media reports, although the 65-year-old Jenner was unharmed.
“My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident,” Jenner said in a statement released by his publicist, Alan Nierob, and carried on the CNN website.
“It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible.”
Jenner, who was driving an SUV, told police that paparazzi were chasing him at the time of the fatal accident, but investigators have said there was no sign photographers following the reality TV star played a role in the crash, CNN reported earlier.
The former stepfather to Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian has been seen on their reality television program angrily confronting photographers in the past.
He has been at the center of frenzied speculation in recent months that he may soon come out as transgender.
