It’s a jungle out there on the roads! Okay, there aren’t any four-legged predators hunting down unwary drivers, but Kris Jenner’s car accident probably made her feel like she’d been attacked by a wild animal. Kris was just out minding her own business driving her white Rolls Royce around her Calabasas neighborhood when another car came out of nowhere and smashed right into her.
TMZ was the first to report on the “scary” accident and the pics they posted were more than scary. The accident “absolutely destroyed the front end” of Jenner’s car after the other car crushed the fender and crumpled up the car’s hood.
The damage was worst on the passenger side of Kris’s car, so the mother of six and grandmother of five must have been so relieved that she didn’t have any of her precious children or grandchildren in the car with her.
People reports that Jenner’s accident happened really quickly when Kris was heading west in her car on Calabasas Rd. in Calabasas, not expecting anything unusual to happen. Without any warning, an eastbound car swung out in front her Jenner “in an attempt to get on the southbound 101 freeway” and caused a two-car accident involving the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.
Kris couldn’t stop in time and couldn’t get out of the way on the busy roads. Her brand new, $250,000 Rolls was totaled when it crashed into the passenger side of the other car, a grey Prius. Twitter user Kimberly Cheng passed the accident on her way to work and tweeted that she thought it “looked bad.”
Although at the time of the accident, Jenner was alone, it wasn’t long before several members of the tightly knit Kardashian family “rushed” to her side, according to the Daily Mail. Daughters Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian “were quick to arrive” along with Kim Kardashian’s husband Kanye West, and Kris’ boyfriend Corey Gamble. They didn’t yet know the extent of Jenner’s accident injuries and came to “check on her well-being.”
Some of Kylie Jenner’s Twitter followers thought that Kylie had been in the car with Kris and had actually been driving and Snapchatting at the same time when the accident happened. Kylie quickly reassured them that it was Kris driving the car, and the rest of the story was made up.
Paramedics kept Jenner in her car while they worked on her, but she was able to assure Kylie, Khloe, and the rest of her family that all was more or less well. Despite the mess of the two cars, Kris herself only sustained an injury to her wrist, which she “may have broken.” She later told E! News that the injured hand “hurts” and she was definitely still feeling “shook up” even several hours after the accident.
Kris clearly has a lot of supporters and well wishers if all the tweets expressing concern for the 60-year-old KUWTK grandmother are anything to go by. One fan tweeted their hope that the Kardashian and Jenner girls were coping with their mother’s accident, and offered condolences to the Kardashian family.
Another admirer offered her prayers for Kris to get better soon.
Super-fan Kimye Kardawest found out hours after the accident and tweeted a big red heart with a message of love for Kris.
Some people were less than impressed with the amount of attention Kris Jenner and Kylie were getting when a mass stabbing in London seemed to be way less visible in the news.
The outpouring of concern for Jenner was enormous, despite a few disgruntled folks. One admirer said she was in “actual tears” about Jenner.
Another follower said simply that he loves Kris Jenner.
