Howe died when Bruce rear ended her white Lexus on Pacific Coast Highway on Saturday. Bruce slammed into the back of her car and she was pushed into oncoming traffic where her vehicle was struck by a Hummer traveling the other way on the highway.
As previously reported by Hollywood News Daily, Jenner took a field sobriety test and passed and then submitted to a blood test to prove there was no drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of the crash. Rumors that Bruce was possibly texting were also floating around, but reps for the former Olympian say that’s not true.
