Bruce Jenner is likely to avoid major charges following the fatal car crash that killed one person earlier this month.
Reports recently surfaced that claimed that Bruce Jenner could be facing manslaughter charges after being involved in a fatal car accident that killed Jenner's neighbor, 69-year-old Kim Howe. According to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, new evidence regarding Bruce Jenner's speed at the time of the accident could help the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star avoid vehicular manslaughter charges.
According to TMZ, law enforcement sources are now saying that Bruce Jenner will likely not be prosecuted for vehicular manslaughter for a variety of reason, including the fact that he was not speeding, he was not texting and he was not under the influence of anything at the time of the fatal crash.
After the investigation into the fatal accident began, there were many claims that stated that Bruce could have been speeding and or texting/talking on his cell phone at the time, which may have been the reason why he slammed into the back of his neighbor's Lexus, which sent it into oncoming traffic.
Bruce claimed that he wasn't texting and driving and or on his cell phone at the time, despite witnesses claiming to have seen him holding something, which later turned out to be a cigarette. After taking a few sobriety tests at the scene, Bruce later released the following statement according to Mirror.
"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."
It looks like Bruce's cooperation has paid off. While there are still conflicting reports as to Bruce's speed at the time of the accidents, reports are claiming that he was only driving between 38-47 miles per hour.
According to TMZ, sources close to the investigation are claiming that the L.A. County Sheriff's Department's investigation is "pretty much complete" at this time and things seem to be looking up for Bruce.
