Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal multi-car collision in Malibu, CA, according to Post sources.

One person was dead in the crash, said the sources. Eight people were reported injured.

Jenner claims he was being chased by five paparazzi vehicles when the accident occurred, law enforcement sources said.

Jenner’s vehicle rear-ended a white Lexus driven by a woman. That woman’s car spun into oncoming traffic. The impact killed the woman, said the sources.

Jenner’s blue Cadillac Escalade suffered damage to its front. A black Hummer was also damaged.

The accident happened shortly after noon.

Jenner’s Escalade was towing an off-road dune buggy, said witness Keoni Picerno.

“He was up walking around, and he returned to his car once he realized the severity of the accident,” Picerno told The Post.

Jenner was still at the scene at about 1:30 p.m. California time, said Picerno, a 44-year-old Honolulu resident.

The accident occurred on the Pacific Coast Highway near Corral Canyon Road, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

A rescue helicopter picked up one victim at Pepperdine University, two miles east of the crash site.

Jenner, a reality TV star and 1976 Olympic gold medalist, is reportedly in the midst of a sex change procedure.
