LOS ANGELES, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Bruce Jenner is making good on a promise to cooperate with a police investigation into a car crash that killed one person in Malibu, Calif., on Saturday.

The crash happened when a Toyota Prius stopped on the Pacific Coast Highway and was rear-ended by a Lexus. The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star was behind the wheel of a black SUV, which allegedly rear-ended the Lexus and pushed it into oncoming traffic. The female Lexus driver was killed at the scene.

Investigators said they want to examine phone records to determine if Jenner was on his phone at the time of the crash. Los Angeles County Sheriff Sgt. Phil Brooks said a photo taken of Jenner just before the collision shows the former Olympian holding a cell phone.

Using a cell phone while driving in California is illegal.

In an effort to cooperate with police Jenner has offered his cell phone data to the sheriff's department to prove he wasn't texting at the time of the crash, law enforcement told TMZ. Jenner gave verbal permission for investigators to obtain the data, but they said they're still waiting on written permission.

"My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident," he said.
