It was initially reported that Bruce had allegedly told police that the woman had slammed on her brakes, causing him to go into the back of her.

However, a video of the incident, recorded by the cameras of an MTA bus on the same road as the crash, suggests a different story.

According to TMZ.com, the footage shows Bruce colliding with both the Lexus and a Prius also involved in the pile up.

“Bruce hit the Lexus, which propelled it into oncoming traffic and then struck the Hummer,” the publication say of the video. “Bruce then continued on and hit the Prius.”

Following the crash, Bruce offered his sympathies to the family of the crash victim.

"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," Bruce said in a statement to Access Hollywood.
