I guess I see what JohnTeeGee is saying. I don't really find a problem with the thread, as you said, anyone who doesn't want to read it can skip it; but some people do come to ATS to escape mainstream news and celebrity gossip that pervades other sites, their televisions, etc.
3:45 PM PT Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Bruce volunteered to go to the hospital to have his blood drawn for blood alcohol testing. He was taken in a Sheriff's cruiser. We've also learned the woman who was killed in the white car was coming to a stop at a red light when Bruce hit her. We're told law enforcement has already determined Bruce was not speeding.
And we're told there was a 4th car involved in the accident. The woman in the white car hit a Prius in front of her before moving into oncoming traffic.
A witness told USA Today that photographers stood snapping photos of the shaken Jenner in the minutes after the harrowing fatal accident.
“It happened so fast,” said Veronica Bermudez, an employee at the nearby Malibu Roadhouse who echoed Jenner’s charge about the chase by the celebrity shutterbugs.
“They (paparazzi) were here right away,” she told the newspaper. “How could they have gotten here that fast otherwise? I don’t know why they have to follow him, and not just leave him alone.”
But the sergeant disputed the reports of a paparazzi chase preceding the wreck.
“That wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense, but it’s always possible,” said Brooks. “We can’t confirm that.”
“He is not under any investigation right now as far as driving while intoxicated,” the sergeant said.
Police deputies added that Jenner was not being chased by paparazzi at the time, contrary to earlier reports.
Jenner cooperated with investigators, passed a field sobriety test and voluntarily submitted a blood sample to determine whether he was intoxicated, according to Sheriff's Sgt. Philip Brooks.
Veronica Bermudez works at the Malibu Roadhouse restaurant, very close to the site of the accident.
"There are still one, two, three, four cars out on the road, they've got it all blocked off," she said, looking out the window of the restaurant just after 2 pm.
"It happened so fast, it was pretty bad," she said.
She didn't know what might have caused the crash as the roadway is generally not very busy, "there's not a lot of traffic here," she said.
She did wonder whether paparazzi following Jenner might have been involved.
"They were here right away, how could they have gotten here that fast otherwise?" she said.
After the accident they "just stayed on Pacific Coast Highway, taking pictures," she said. "I don't know why they have to follow him and not just leave him alone," she said.

We know that the paps were there but you can tell by the photo they were not following him.
I wonder if Brucy will blame it on some hormone medicine.
Jenner was being followed by paparazzi at the time, but they did not play a factor in the crash, said officials, adding that neither party was speeding.
According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, deputies were sent around 12:12 p.m. to Corral Canyon at the Pacific Coast Highway, for report of a traffic collision involving four vehicles.
“Bruce Jenner was in the third car, which was an Escalade with a trailer behind it towing a Sandrail,” said Sgt. Phillip Brooks of the Malibu Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station.
Deputies said a white Lexus was one of two vehicles that stopped abruptly in front of Jenner. Skid marks reportedly reveal Jenner tried to stop before rear-ending the Lexus by chain reaction, pushing the vehicle into oncoming traffic.
The Lexus was then struck by a Hummer H2 at the scene and smashed to bits.
Authorities pronounced the elderly female driver of the Lexus dead at the scene. Her identity is being withheld pending family notification.

We really need to know where Bruce was when the car stopped.
It is really hard for it to be seen as not your fault when you rear end someone.
You were either to close or not paying attention.
