Bruce Jenner's life changed in an instant on Saturday, when he was involved in a massive car crash that killed one woman and injured several others. As he continues to deal with the aftermath, one thing is for certain: According to a source close to the former Olympian and racing enthusiast, "He will most likely never race again."

"Bruce is terrified of getting behind the wheel of a car right now," a source close the Keeping up with the Kardashians patriarch tells exclusively.

In the 1980s, the 65-year-old, who is currently transitioning to become a woman, had a very successful career in race car driving and has continued to show his love of the sport ever since. He and sons Burt and Brandon even formed a team, Jenner Racing.

However, following the crash on Saturday in Malibu, the insider tells Radar, "The farthest thing from his mind is getting back in race car right now."

"People who know Bruce know that he loves racing, but this has changed everything for him," the source said. "He is still in such shock."

Indeed, on Monday the former Olympian was spotted driving a tiny Ford Fiesta — quite a departure from the massive Escalade he was driving the day of the wreck.

Jenner has not been cited in the accident, and was not drag racing at the time.
