MALIBU, Calif. — Former Olympic decathlon champion and reality TV star Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal four-car accident in Southern California on Saturday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

Jenner was the driver of one vehicle, Deputy Ray Hicks told CNN. Hicks said Jenner was answering questions about the midday wreck in Malibu.

One of the drivers involved in the wreck was killed at the scene, on Pacific Coast Highway near Corral Canyon Road, the news release stated.

No information about the deceased was immediately available.

Jenner, 65, was not injured in the crash, publicist Alan Nierob said.

Pictures posted by TMZ showed Jenner standing by a damaged car talking with a firefighter.

Five people were hospitalized with injuries.

The sheriff’s department is still investigating the cause of the accident, the statement said. Authorities did not detail the sequence of events.

Jenner won the 1976 Olympic decathlon with a world record score for the 10-discipline event. He quickly capitalized on his success with Wheaties commercials, appearances and other ventures.

He became an actor, appearing in the drama “CHiPs” in 1981. He is best known to many television viewers as a member of the cast of the current reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
