Caitlyn Jenner could be charged with manslaughter following her auto accident in Malibu earlier this year that left one dead. The impact of the collision sent Howe’s vehicle into the path of oncoming traffic, and it was hit by another SUV.
No word on what the consequences would be of the charges, if pressed, but needless to say Jenner won’t be serving any jail time.
Daniel W. Vomhof, an accident reconstructionist, said the additional weight from towing a loaded trailer makes it more hard to stop a vehicle quickly.
This week. the Los Angeles County Sheriff said its investigation was completed and turned over to the district attorney’s office.
Although Jenner was not speeding, she was driving too fast for the day’s road conditions.
Sheriff’s officials said their investigation determined that Jenner, then known as Bruce Jenner, was driving at an unsafe speed when the February 7 collision occurred on Pacific Coast Highway near Corral Canyon Road.
The families of the victims sued Jenner, who was known as Bruce Jenner at the time.
Caitlyn Jenner can face charges of involuntary manslaughter in connection with a February auto crash that killed one woman and injured seven. But it was through marriage to the former Kris Kardashian that she became a household name with the reality TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, appearing as the sometimes bemused stepfather of her flamboyant daughters.
Jenner faced lawsuits from Howe’s stepchildren after the crash claiming that it was her negligence that caused the crash, which has caused their family “a great loss”.
Hollywood talent manager Jessica Steindorff was driving a Prius that was struck by Jenner’s Escalade after it hit Howe.
News broke on Thursday police officials were handing the case over to the District Attorney’s office to determine whether or not Caitlyn will face vehicular manslaughter charges and her mother Esther hopes the I Am Cait star is found to be clear in the eyes of the law. She’s vowed to use her to celebrity platform to urge acceptance for others who are transgender.
