Bruce Jenner is reportedly working with the police to prove that he was not texting during the car accident that took the life of one of the drivers. As reported earlier this week, reality star Bruce Jenner was involved in a car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, Calif., when his car rear-ended the vehicle in front of him. The car Jenner rear-ended went into oncoming traffic and was hit by a third vehicle. Though Jenner walked away from the crash without any major injuries, the driver of the vehicle Jenner rear-ended did not survive. According to TMZ, Jenner wants to release his phone records to the police in an effort to prove that he was not texting prior to the crash. According to the site, Jenner's promise to the police was verbal, but the police department will need it in writing in order to gain access to the records.
As we all know, texting and driving is a major cause of car accidents, and it's important for Jenner to prove that texting wasn't a reason for the accident, even if, according to TMZ, it might not absolve him of all fault civilly as there is a law about following too closely on the road. By releasing his phone records Jenner is making it clear that this tragedy was a terrible accident, rather than something that could have been preventable had he not participated in reckless behavior. It's good to hear, but sadly, it doesn't make the accident any less tragic.
