According to reports, transitioning reality star Bruce Jenner has revealed that he was on a “very low dosage” when involved in a car crash over the weekend.

The former Olympian has not yet commented on his decision to transition into a woman.

The father of six has reportedly told LAPD officers investigating Saturday’s car crash that occurred on Malibu’s Pacific Coast Highway that left a 69-year-old woman dead.

Jenner divulged that he has been taking a "very low dosage" of doctor-prescribed hormones to grow breasts.

Radar Online reports that Jenner told hospital staff that he is in the process of transitioning when Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies transported him to a hospital for a voluntary blood test.

During a routine questioning, Bruce was asked if he was taking any medication and said that "he was taking very low dosage of hormones that his doctor had prescribed."

Following the accident, Bruce said in a statement to Access Hollywood,"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,"

"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."

Police are now requesting Jenner's phone records to determine if he was texting while at the wheel, a claim which his publicist has strongly denied.

Jenner won a gold medal in the men's decathlon at the 1976 Summer Games, but he is known to a younger generation as Kim Kardashian's stepfather.
