Bruce Jenner

Speed at Impact ... 38 MPH

2/24/2015 4:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0224_bruce_jenner_crash_splashBruce Jenner was traveling at 38 miles an hour when he struck the Lexus on Pacific Coast Highway earlier this month ... according to data retrieved from his SUV.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the Sensing Diagnostic Module (data recorder) shows Bruce was traveling between 46 and 47 MPH when he slammed on his brakes. Our sources say impact occurred almost immediately after braking.

That would mean Bruce must not have seen the cars backed up at the light until the very last second, which could explain why he was casually holding a cigarette as the cars collided.

TMZ broke the story ... an MTA bus captured the entire crash, showing Bruce's SUV hitting the Lexus, which went into oncoming traffic and struck a Hummer, killing the Lexus driver. Bruce then hit the Prius that was in front of the Lexus.

We're told the entire accident occurred in less than 3 seconds.

1:10 PM PST -- Cops tell us there was no damage to the Kardashian's vehicle -- a black Yukon GMC -- and a motor carrier service called the slide-off into police. 

We're told the incident was part of a number of similar accidents that happened today due to the icy roads ... and the family was calm when cops arrived. No citations were issued.

update_grey_gray_bar

Khloe Kardashian skidded on an ice-covered Montana road and dangerously crossed into oncoming traffic, eventually landing in a ditch with Kim, North West and Kylie on board.

We're told the girls were driving in Bozeman, MT Saturday morning when a semi-truck drove by their car and kicked up a ton of snow, hitting their windshield and apparently blinding Khloe.

Apparently Khloe couldn't see and began swerving, right into a patch of black ice.  The car then spun out of control, crossing oncoming traffic and ending up in a ditch.

We're told cops came and everyone's ok.  

The accident comes 2 weeks to the day after Bruce Jenner got in his fatal car crash.

Kim posted this pic on Instagram afterward ... seemingly making reference to the accident.

Bruce Jenner

Video Shows Bruce Squarely to Blame

In 'Violent' Crash

EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner
was squarely at fault in the fatal car crash ... so claim people familiar with the MTA video of the crash. 

Law enforcement would not comment on the video, however, others familiar with it tell TMZ it shows the drivers of the other 3 vehicles in the crash did nothing wrong. We're told the video shows the Lexus and the Prius moving at a very slow rate of speed, though it's unclear whether they are accelerating or decelerating. They were in the back of a line of cars stopped for a red light.

As we reported, Bruce told cops at the scene the Lexus driver slammed on her brakes without warning, making it impossible for him to react in time to avoid the crash. We're told the video actually shows the Lexus barely moving -- she did not slam on her brakes -- and Bruce is clearly inattentive, holding his cigarette with one hand and not aware of the traffic in front of him. By the time he realizes he's in peril, he slams on the brakes but it's too late. 

We're told the video shows Bruce hit the Lexus "violently" ... rocketing it into the Hummer, killing the Lexus driver. Our sources say the video shows Bruce was clearly traveling at a significant speed given the magnitude of the crash, although cops believe he was not speeding.

Bruce then continued on and hit the Prius, and we're told that collision occurred at almost the exact time the Lexus hit the Hummer, which is why witnesses say they only heard 2 crashes.

Although the video seems to show Bruce and Bruce alone caused the crash, it was still an accident and some of our law enforcement sources think it's unlikely he'll be charged with vehicular manslaughter because the offense is following too closely, something everyone has done.

I've Got No Room For It

0217_dan_bilzerian_lamborghini_ebay_sale_launch_2Most people unload high-priced sports cars because they're gas guzzling money pits on wheels -- but Dan Bilzerian does it because he's got one too many sick rides. #DanBilzerianProblems

Instagram's 'Most Interesting Man' is in the process of custom building a new Baja racing truck, and has to clear out space ... in his NINE-car garage! So DB made the tough call to ditch his 2013 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster.

Bilzerian has put the car up for sale on eBay with a "Buy It Now" price of $500,000 ... about $150k less than he paid for it. And in case you think the car is worn down -- it only has 957 miles on it.

The Lambo does NOT include a guarantee to get you chicks -- à la Dan -- but it won't hurt.

Mama June was rear-ended by a hit and run driver Monday ... and her brood is badly shaken.

June tells us, she and the girls were leaving a gas station close to their new home in Hampton, GA when a minivan rear-ended their Suburban. She called 911 but the other driver sped off before she could write down the plate number. 

No one was hurt but it scared everyone, especially Pumpkin ... who was badly injured last year in a another family car wreck.

The damage was minimal, so good luck finding the hit and run driver. Nevertheless, June says she'll file a police report.

Patrick Schwarzenegger

Involved in Los Angeles Car Chase

... Cops Investigate

2/17/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0216_patrick-schwarzenegger_TMZPatrick Schwarzenegger got himself in one of those famous L.A. car chases -- but this one started with a simple splash of water ... and ended with a 2-car collision. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Patrick was driving in the San Fernando Valley last week when some guy drove up on him and threw a bottle full of water on Patrick's whip and then bolted.   

We're told Patrick got pissed and started chasing the guy, who at some point banged a u-turn and ended up ramming Patrick's car.  Although the damage was minor ... the guy fled the scene. 

Patrick drove on to hook-up with GF Miley Cyrus for lunch at a nearby restaurant and called cops from there. Officers showed up, took a report ... and opened an assault with a deadly weapon investigation.

Bonus for cops -- they got to meet Miley, who we're told was wearing a sheer top with star pasties underneath.

EXCLUSIVE

Drake Dad Car AccidentThe night Drake released his new album, his dad had a very strange accident ... driving his luxury ride over a street sign and crashing into the side of a building.  

Dennis Graham tells TMZ he was running errands in downtown Memphis around 8:30 PM Thursday ... when he accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake and smashed his Jaguar XK8 into an apartment building wall. No one was hurt.

Graham says the pedal mix up happened when his Timberlands got stuck under the brake, and he was trying to free them. 

Dennis says the building manager wasn't there -- so he drove home, and returned to the scene Friday morning where cops were assessing the damage. They gave him a ticket for failure to maintain proper control.  

We know what you're thinking -- and Dennis says he wasn't boozing. Total damage ... around $400 ... which he says insurance will cover. Drizzy Sr. adds, "I will never drive in those [shoes] as long as I live."

Gary Busey

In Malibu Car Accident

Pedestrian Down

2/13/2015 4:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021315_gary_busey_launchGary Busey is the latest celebrity to get in a car accident in Malibu, because we've learned he hit a pedestrian Friday afternoon.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Busey was pulling out of a parking space in the Pavilions grocery store lot when he struck a woman who was walking by. Busey didn't see her as he backed out and she had her back to him.

The woman -- who was on the older side -- was knocked to the ground and suffered minor injuries.

Paramedics came and treated her on scene, and she left.

As you know ... Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal car accident in Malibu last Saturday, and Mel Gibson hit a parked car near his Malibu home last December.

We'll have video in a few minutes. 

Bruce Jenner

She Slammed On Her Brakes ...

I Didn't Have A Chance

2/13/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0212_bruce_jenner_crash_splash

Bruce Jenner told cops the Lexus driver who was killed in Saturday's crash suddenly, without warning, slammed her brakes in front of him and there was no way he could avoid the crash.

Multiple sources tell us ... Bruce couldn't say if the Lexus driver had smashed into the Prius before his SUV struck her car, because it all happened so quickly.  

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the Lexus left no skid marks, but that is not necessarily telling. Bruce's SUV didn't leave skid marks either ... only his trailer did. We're told the anti-lock devices on these vehicles could have prevented the tires from skidding.

Bruce's problem ... drivers are supposed to leave enough space between themselves and the car in front to prevent such accidents, and this is consistent with what law enforcement believes ... that Bruce was following too closely.

Our law enforcement sources tell us they have not drawn any conclusions, but the scenario that the Lexus did not hit the Prius but that Bruce did after pushing the Lexus into oncoming traffic is still in play.

Mel Gibson

In Malibu Car Crash

Mel Says Victim's Out for Blood

2/13/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0212_mel_gibson_tmzMel Gibson plowed into a parked car in Malibu right after XMAS ... and he says the victim is now hounding him for thousands of dollars she doesn't deserve simply because he's a rich celebrity.

Our Malibu sources say Mel was driving somewhere near his home in the evening when he hit the parked car. We're told the damage was severe enough that he had to call someone to come over and extricate him from the vehicle. Once out, Mel left a note on the 13-year-old car with his contact info -- including his phone number -- and left.

We're told Mel's insurance company cut a check for the repairs, a rental car and other expenses and sent it to the other driver, but she started calling and texting him that she wanted more. Our Mel sources say she demanded more cash and a new car.

We're told the woman began contacting Mel incessantly, trying to squeeze him and he finally threatened to sic his lawyers on her for harassing him. On her part, the woman has threatened to sue him.  

The matter has not been resolved.

You'll recall, Mel was arrested for DUI back in 2006. As for this incident, we asked his people if alcohol was involved. They said, "absolutely not."
