Bruce Jenner Sued for Wrongful Death in Fatal Malibu Car Crash
The 65-year-old is being sued by the stepchildren of Kim Howe, the woman who was killed in the crash, according to TMZ.
As we reported at the time of the incident, Jenner was driving down Pacific Coast Highway when he collided with the back of Howe’s Lexus, which then went into oncoming traffic and was hit by a Hummer.
Law enforcement sources revealed that video of the crash, caught on tape by an MTA bus, suggested that Jenner was following Howe’s Lexus too closely.
The stepchildren of Howe filed a lawsuit that says Jenner was “careless and negligent” when he collided with Howe’s car. The lawsuit also says that Jenner was speeding, but law enforcement insiders revealed that Jenner was actually going below the speed limit at the time of the crash.
Howe’s stepchildren who filed the lawsuit reportedly had no relationship with her. So, it will be hard for them to prove any of the damages they claim, like loss of affection. Howe reportedly has no other living relatives.
Right now, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is still investigating this crash. The file will then be sent to the Los Angeles District Attorney where the prosecution decision will be made. But, TMZ is reporting that it’s “unlikely prosecutors will file.”
