Immediately after Bruce Jenner's accident yesterday, people assumed that paparazzi might have contributed in some way. The photogs are especially eager to get pics of the former Olympian right now as he's reportedly going through a gender transition.

There was a report that as many as 5 paparazzi were chasing Bruce at the time of his accident, which made people even more angry at the photos. From what Bruce told cops, however, the paparazzi were following him and he was aware of that, but he wasn't trying to get away from them.

"As of right now, there is no indication that Bruce Jenner was being chased by paparazzi at the time of the crash," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Lt. John Lecrivain told CNN. "There was a possibility that paparazzi was following him at the time of the crash, but that is a very regular occurrence, and (there is) no indication at this time it was a contributing factor of the crash."

Sergeant Philip Brooks from the department seemed to echo the same sentiment, telling KTLA 5 that the former Olympian "said he wasn't driving erratically to avoid them, because really on PCH there's nowhere to go...He just knew that they were there and they seem to always be there, but they don't seem to be a factor in this collision."

Although original reports state that there were three cars in the collision, they have now been clarified to include a fourth car. Tragically, there was one fatality and multiple other injuries. Bruce was unharmed.
