Caitlyn Jenner will not be charged in connection with a crash on the Pacific Coast Highway earlier this year that left a female motorist dead, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.
Howe’s stepchildren have filed a civil lawsuit for unspecified damages claiming that Jenner was negligent in the crash, causing them and other relatives “great losses”.
Prosecutors admit there is insufficient evidence to pursue a vehicular manslaughter charge against Jenner over the Malibu crash. The crash led to the death of Kimberly Howe, 70.
The investigation previously cited that Jenner was driving too fast under unsafe conditions.
“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 bad accident”, Caitlyn expressed to Access Hollywood at the time.
As per the summary, the only possible violation against Jenner could be a violation of the basic speed law.
“We believed from the start that a thorough and objective investigation would clear Caitlyn of any criminal wrongdoing”, said Blair Berk.
Does it make sense given the secret that Caitlyn Jenner was hiding from her for all those years? “We are heartened the district attorney has agreed that even a misdemeanor charge would be inappropriate”.
Caitlyn Jenner is now the star of her own reality TV show, “I Am Cait“, centered on her transition.
“A traffic accident, however devastating and heartbreaking when a life is lost, is not necessarily a criminal matter”, she added. I don’t know. We’ll see. According to CNN, the Steindorff accuses Jenner of driving her vehicle “negligently, carelessly, recklessly and wantonly” which caused the collision. Howe was rear-ended by Jenner when a Prius stopped suddenly for unknown reasons. Although Jenner stepped on the car’s brake 1.9 to 1.5 seconds before it hit Howe’s vehicle, the dune buggy still slammed the Lexus, reports Reuters.
