Whether they grew up seeing him on a Wheaties box after winning Olympic gold or saw him only as the bemused dad attempting to keep up with the Kardashians, Florida residents have undoubtedly seen lots of Bruce Jenner in the media. Recently, however, he was in the news for a very different reason -- his involvement in a fatal auto accident on Malibu's Pacific Coast Highway.
The tragedy unfolded on Feb. 7 when Jenner and others collided in a chain-reaction wreck on the Southern California highway. According to a sergeant with the sheriff's department, a Prius had stopped in the highway, but the Lexus behind it was unable to stop and hit it from behind. Jenner was approaching in his black Cadillac Escalade, with a trailer towing an off-road vehicle. He, too, was unable to stop or take appropriate evasive action, and slammed into the Lexus, knocking it into the path of an oncoming Hummer.
