Caitlyn Jenner Settles Fatal Car Crash Lawsuit
Caitlyn Jenner has settled her lawsuit with the family of the woman who was killed in her multi-vehicle car crash.
According to TMZ, Kim Howe’s stepchildren, William Howe and Dana Redmond, have filed court documents for a dismissals pertaining to their case this week. Sources tell the publication that the lawsuit was settled for a “very modest amount” because all that were involved realized the Kim’s family had no legal standing to press the case. The site reports that the money was paid by insurance and nothing came out of the Olympian’s own pocket.
On Feb. 7, 2015, Caitlyn, then legally known as Bruce Jenner, was behind the wheel of her Escalade on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, Calif. when her car crashed into the back of a Lexus that Kim was driving. The Lexus then went into oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a Hummer, which resulted in Kim’s death.
As previously reported, Caitlyn was also slapped with a lawsuit from the driver of the Hummer, who claimed he and his family sustained injuries in the collision.
Caitlyn is also being sued by a driver of a Prius that she hit after colliding into Kim’s Lexus. The driver of the Prius says she “several physical injuries and damage to her car” as well as “lost wages” from the accident.
Last September, prosecutors declined to file manslaughter charges against Caitlyn.
