Bruce Jenner had to submit a blood sample to a healthcare worker after he was involved in a deadly car accident Saturday that left one woman dead and several others injured, and he admitted that he has been taking hormones, though they were not a contributing factor in the accident, Radar Online reports.

While driving his Cadillac Escalade on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, Jenner rear-ended 69-year-old Kim Howe, who then veered into oncoming traffic and was hit head on by a black Hummer.

She was pronounced dead at the scene. (RELATED: Here Are The Details Of Bruce Jenner’s Deadly Car Accident)

Jenner passed a field sobriety test, and during his blood draw the healthcare worker asked the former Olympic medalist to list any medications he was taking.

“When Jenner was asked during the blood draw to detail his medications, the reality TV star said ‘he was taking a very low dosage of hormones that his doctor had prescribed,’ a source told Radar.” 

Jenner later expressed his condolences after the accident.
