Caitlyn Jenner will not be charged over a Malibu vehicle accident that left another driver dead earlier in the year.
During the crash, a white Lexus being driven by 69-year-old Kim Howe was shoved by Jenner’s sport-utility vehicle across a center divider and into oncoming traffic, where it was struck head-on by a Hummer.
In surveillance footage obtained by ET, Jenner’s Cadillac Escalade can be seen hitting Howe’s white Lexus, and a black Prius. Jenner was actually driving below the speed limit, but at an unsafe speed for the road conditions that day, the report determined. The case was then referred to the district attorney’s major crimes division.
“A traffic incident, however devastating and heartbreaking when a life is lost, is not necessarily a criminal matter”, Berk said.
“Based on facts, (the prosecution) can not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that suspect’s conduct was unreasonable”, according to a charge- evaluation worksheet prepared the D.A.’s Office.
Her kids aren’t exactly on-board because they think that Corey is merely a rebound for Kris, who recently split from Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner after 22 years of marriage – but all that really matters to them in their mother’s happiness.
Ms Jenner is facing separate lawsuits by Ms Howe’s stepchildren and the driver of the other auto involved in the collision. Jenner escaped serious injury in the crash and declined medical treatment, authorities said at the time. Kim also confronted Caitlyn about it and both of them believed that she threw the entire family under the bus, especially Kris Jenner.
The ex-husband of Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner later won the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYS in July and delivered a moving speech about tolerance and acceptance with famous daughters Kendall and Kylie sitting in the audience alongside the Kardashian sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney. She was born Bruce Jenner and won an Olympic gold medal for the decathlon in 1976.
