Bruce, 65, seems unharmed -- thank goodness. But it's awful that there was a fatality. It appears he was a passenger in one of the three cars in the crash (according to the latest from ESPN), but it's unclear exactly what happened. Jenner was seen speaking with police on the scenes. A statement was issued, which read:

At approximately 12:15pm [PST] there was an accident involving three vehicles on PCH, just east of Corral Canyon. Bruce Jenner was involved. We don't know yet in what way he was involved, if he was a passenger or driver. There is one fatality.

Jenner also reportedly told the police that at the time of the accident, he was being pursued by a group of five paparazzi. He said he wasn't drinking at the time of the incident, and volunteered for a field sobriety test. (He passed.)

Being in an accident where there was a death will no doubt affect Bruce, who (if you watched Keeping Up With the Kardashians) can be a big softie with a warm heart. He's been in the news a lot lately because he is transitioning to a woman, which he is documenting in his own series for E!. I hope Bruce is okay, and that he went to the hospital to get checked out just in case. Very sad day -- and a reminder how precious life is.

Do you think the paparazzi should be held accountable for these car chases that end in accidents or tragedy?
