About a year ago, Caitlyn Jenner, who was then a man going as a man named Bruce Jenner, was out hotshotting around in his big HUMMR SUV when he slammed into one of his neighbors’ cars, causing a multiple car accident and killing the woman. He’s, or “she’s” rather, now that he prefers to be identified as a woman, has been up for murder charges and a wrongful death civil suit ever since. Well, it turns out they’ve all just been dropped! At least in part.
From Yahoo News:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The stepchildren of a woman killed in a car crash caused by Caitlyn Jenner have dismissed their civil lawsuit against the Olympic gold medalist.
Jenner’s attorney, Philip Boesch Jr., confirmed Thursday that the wrongful death suit has been dismissed. No additional details were immediately available from court records, which show the dismissal was requested Tuesday.
Jenner’s sport utility vehicle rear-ended two cars on Pacific Coast Highway in February, pushing Kim Howe’s Lexus into oncoming traffic, where it was struck by a Hummer. The 69-year-old woman died.
Howe’s stepchildren, Dana Redmond and William Howe, sued Jenner in May. Their attorney did not immediately return a phone message.
Sheriff’s investigators determined Jenner was traveling at an unsafe speed for the conditions at the time. Prosecutors, citing unlikelihood to prove negligence in court, declined to file a vehicular manslaughter charge against Jenner, who won a 1976 Olympic gold medal in decathlon as Bruce Jenner. She later came out as transgender, transitioning to a woman.
