(CNN) — Former Olympic decathlon champion and reality TV star Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal three-car accident in Southern California on Saturday, a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman said.

Sgt. Matthew Dunn was unable to say whether Jenner was a driver or passenger.

One person was killed in the wreck at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Corral Canyon Road, Dunn said, but no information about the deceased was immediately available.
