Caitlyn Jenner car crash victim sued
The estate of Kim Howe, who was killed in a multi-car accident involving reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner, has been sued by the passengers of a Hummer she crashed into.
Los Angeles: The estate of Kim Howe, who was killed in a multi-car accident involving reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner, has been sued by the passengers of a Hummer she crashed into.
Howe was the driver of a Lexus that 65-year-old Jenner's Cadillac Escalade crashed into in February.
Her estate has been slapped with an USD 18.5 million lawsuit by the five passengers of a Hummer her car collided with in the incident on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California, reported TMZ.
The passengers feel Howe was negligent and claim she caused the collision. It is also claimed that the unnamed five passengers will also "sue Jenner at a later time".
Howe's Lexus hit the Hummer after being forced into oncoming traffic due to the impact of her car being hit by the E! reality star, who was known as Bruce Jenner at the time of the incident prior to her gender transition.
Los Angeles prosecutors are currently determining whether Jenner will face vehicular manslaughter charges after investigators determined she "set off a chain of events" that resulted in the fatal car crash.
Whilst Caitlyn was not driving over the speed limit, the LA County sheriff claims she was going too fast for the road conditions that day.
