Bruce Jenner was involved in a four-vehicle pileup that killed one person and injured an infant on Saturday afternoon in the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California, several miles away from his home.

The 65-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and ex-husband of Kris Jenner was seen inside an ambulance at the scene of the crash and given medical attention as a precaution. He wasn't hurt, a police spokesperson told NBC Los Angeles. Jenner has not commented.
One person, an adult woman, died in the accident, which took place just after 12 p.m. on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and involved four vehicles. Seven other people, including an infant, suffered minor to moderate injuries and five of them were hospitalized.

One of the crash survivors, a woman, lay on a stretcher and was handed her baby, according to a source.

Police are investigating the cause of the deadly accident. They told NBC Los Angeles that Jenner is being cooperative, adding that he did not know if the reality star was an occupant or driver of the vehicle.

The outlet quoted a police spokesperson as saying that he underwent a DUI exam at the scene and also had blood and alcohol tests done at a hospital. The results have not been released.
Jenner was inside a navy blue SUV which was hauling a dune buggy, at the time of the crash. The police spokesperson told NBC News that his car hit a Lexus sedan driven by a woman, who was driving behind a Prius, and that her vehicle spun or veered into the opposite lane and hit a Hummer head on. Traffic was moving slowly on their side of the highway at the time.

 The highway, which overlooks the ocean and is typically busy at most daylight and rush hour times, was shut down in both directions following the accident.
