Caitlyn Jenner Violated Vehicular Manslaughter Law in Deadly Crash
Caitlyn Jenner, the transgender reality TV star, who went by the name of Bruce Jenner at the time of the accident, was driving an SUV along the Pacific Coast Highway in California in February 2015 when the vehicle slammed into the back of another car, causing a pile-up which nudged fellow driver Kim Howe’s car into oncoming traffic.
Howe was killed and details of a newly-completed report compiled from months of investigation into the accident, obtained by TMZ, suggest Kim Kardashian’s stepfather, Jenner, “set off a chain of events” that led to her death by driving at a speed deemed unsafe for road conditions.
Although the former Olympian was reportedly driving under the speed limit, officials have declared she should have been “barely rolling” as the traffic came to a near standstill.
Investigators have ruled the 65-year-old violated the misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter law and the case will now be sent to the Los Angeles County District Attorney for further scrutiny.
If convicted, Jenner faces up to one year in prison.
