REPORT: Lawsuit Targets Woman Killed in Caitlyn Jenner Crash

REPORT: Lawsuit Targets Woman Killed in Caitlyn Jenner Crash


The driver who was killed in the crash involving Caitlyn Jenner is being sued by the people who struck and killed her.

The estate of Kim Howe, the woman who died in the car crash involving Caitlyn Jenner, is being sued by the occupants of the vehicle which struck and killed her, according to TMZ. They're suing Howe's estate for $18.5 million, claiming she was negligent and caused the collision. The report says they plan to sue Jenner at a later time.

As The Advocate previously reported, a Lexus driven by Kimberly Howe rear-ended a Prius driven by Jessica Steindorff on Pacific Coast Highway last February, causing a multi-car pile up. Jenner's SUV rear-ended Howe's Lexus, pushing it into oncoming traffic, where it was struck head-on by a Hummer. Howe died in the crash, and several people were injured.

After a six month investigation, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department announced last week there is a "50/50" chance Jenner will face a misdemeanor manslaughter charge for driving at an "unsafe speed." Jenner was not exceeding the speed limit, but was going too fast for road conditions at the time, authorities say.

Howe's stepchildren and Jessica Steindorff have filed lawsuits against Jenner.
