According to new reports, Bruce Jenner was driving at 38 mph during this month’s fatal car accident.
The former Olympian was traveling in his SUV along Pacific Coast Highway when he struck a Lexus, which then spun into oncoming traffic and was hit by a Hummer, killing the Lexus driver, Kim Howe.
Investigators had questioned whether speed could have been a factor in the deadly collision, but according to TMZ, the Sensing Diagnostic Module in Bruce Jenner’s car shows he was initially driving between 46 and 47 mph.
Bruce Jenner slammed on his brakes right before the impact, bringing his speed down to 38, per the data recorder. The incident reportedly took place in less than three seconds.
The new information could prove that Bruce Jenner was unaware of the traffic backup at a stop light ahead of him, as investigators continue to research whether he was driving too closely to the Lexus, and how much fault he bears for what happened.
After striking the Lexus, Bruce Jenner then hit the Prius that was in front of the other car. The accident was caught on tape by a MTA bus surveillance camera.
Bruce Jenner initially reportedly claimed he was being chased by paparazzi, but officials have said photographers were not near enough to have been a factor.
