Bruce Jenner has reportedly told the police there was no way he could've avoided a recent car crash that left one woman dead and seven people injured.
The reality TV star was involved in a four-car pile-up last week, but several sources have told ‘TMZ’ that he was unable to stop from smashing into the back of a vehicle because the driver — who has been identified as 65-year-old Kardashian neighbor Kim Howe — in front of him slammed on her brakes.

Insiders also told the website the 65-year-old star isn't sure whether or not Howe's Lexus had already hit a Prius, which was in front of her, before his SUV collided into her vehicle. As a result, Howe was propelled into oncoming traffic and struck by a Hummer. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Bruce recently released a statement about the crash, in which he admitted he was "praying" for those injured and vowed to cooperate with the authorities in "every way possible".

He said: "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.
"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."
The star is believed to be in the process of a gender transition, but such plans are said to have been put on hold because he is putting so much time into helping out with the investigation.
