UPDATE: The woman who tragically lost her life during this horrific accident was identified today as 69-year-old Kim Howe of Calabasas, CA. Multiple outlets have reported that the victim is said to be an old neighbor of the Jenner family, but there is no official confirmation.

Bruce Jenner is reportedly being ruled out of the pool of suspects in the deadly car accident that occurred on Saturday along the Pacific Coast Highway in CA.

According to a law enforcement insider, the police believe the Prius (which was first in the line of vehicles) may be at fault after making a sudden stop which caused the Lexus (next in line) to slam into it.

At the scene of the pileup, the driver in the Prius told law enforcement officers she was stopped at a red light, but in actuality, she was allegedly 300 feet from the stoplight. When police questioned if there were a line of cars in front of her, she was very vague about it.

Cops think she was attempting to make an illegal U-turn on a two lane street.

To paint a picture of what happened with this new information — if the Prius did come to a sudden stop on the highway and the Lexus crashed into the Prius, Bruce probably slammed on his brakes and swerved right, but couldn’t stop.

His maneuver out of the way caused the Lexus to get hit as it was pushed into oncoming traffic. It slammed the Hummer and the driver of the small car died on impact.

If it all happened exactly like that, Bruce isn’t at fault for the outcome of the accident, but the driver of the Prius could be found partly responsible.

Despite all of the craziness going on, Bruce made a public statement about the crash, saying:

“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.”

This whole thing is such a tragic incident.

Our thoughts go out to the family who lost a loved one that day.
