Los Angeles County Sheriff’s investigators will present evidence pointing to a misdemeanor manslaughter charge against transgender reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner in connection with a fatal Malibu car crash earlier this year , the Los Angeles Times reported on Thursday. During the crash, a white Lexus being driven by 69-year-old Kim Howe was shoved by Jenner’s sport-utility vehicle across a centre divider and into oncoming traffic, where it was struck head-on by a Hummer. The evidence will show that Jenner, 65, was driving at an unsafe speed on Feb 7 before her Cadillac Escalade, which was towing a trailer carrying an off-road vehicle, slammed into two other cars on Pacific Coast Highway, a sheriff’s detective told the paper.
- Howe was killed in the collision and Jessica Steindorff, who was driving a black Toyota Prius also rear-ended by Jenner, was injured.
- Both Steindorff and Howe’s stepchildren family sued Jenner, who was known as Bruce Jenner at the time of the crash and rose to fame with a record-breaking Olympic gold medal victory in the decathlon in the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal.
- Caitlyn Jenner is now the star of her own reality TV show, “I Am Cait,” centred on her transition.
