Bruce Jenner has spoken out for the first time since being involved in a fatal car crash Saturday.

"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," Jenner said in a statement to E! News. "It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible."

One woman was killed and five others injured shortly after 12 p.m. Saturday on Malibu's Pacific Coast Highway after the SUV Jenner was driving rear-ended the Lexus in front of him, causing the Lexus to hit the Prius in front of it and spin into oncoming traffic. The driver of the Lexus died.

Jenner was not injured.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is currently investigating the accident, which prompted authorities to close the Pacific Coast Highway in both directions for several hours on Saturday afternoon.

A Sheriff's spokesperson told KNBC that Jenner has indeed been fully cooperative and he reportedly passed field sobriety tests conducted at the scene; investigators are awaiting results of a blood test.
