The sole fatality from the four-car accident involving Bruce Jenner on Saturday, Feb. 7 has been identified as Kim Howe, The Los Angeles Times reports. Howe was a neighbor of the famous Kardashian-Jenner clan, who live in Calabasas, Calif. 

She was 69 at the time of her death. 

Howe was driving her Lexus when she collided with a Toyota Prius that had slowed down, and Jenner then rear-ended her Lexus with his Cadillac Escalade, causing Howe’s car to go into oncoming traffic.

The former Olympian, 65, issued a statement following the accident, 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."

As was previously reported, Jenner took an on-site breathalyzer test, which he passed, and since then a search warrant was issued for the reality star’s phone to see if he was texting at the time of the crash. 

"The evidence will show that Bruce was not texting at the time of the accident," Jenner’s publicist Alan Nierob told the AP late Sunday.
