Caitlyn Jenner fatal crash

Summary: As the story continues to develop, the case against Jenner is becoming weaker and weaker with officials changing their words to lessen the punishment that Jenner would unlikely be faced with.

All reports initially stated that the LA County Sheriff was recommending a vehicular manslaughter charge be brought against celebrity Caitlyn Jenner but now they are taking those words back. The County Sheriff’s office states that Jenner could face charges.


The four-car accident that resulted in the death of a 69-year-old woman, Kim Howe, is tragic but no one’s fault. The speed at which Jenner was driving on that day, while it was still under the speed limit, was deemed too fast for the wet conditions and caused the series of events, which is odd since the Howe rear-ended another car first.

Now the law enforcement office is saying that even if Jenner does face charges, they will not be a felony like originally stated and would instead be a misdemeanor charge. Jenner’s actions are being blamed as that of an inattentive driver and not negligence. The way her car hit the Lexus just happened to push it into the other lane of traffic but could have easily pushed it the other way.

The Sheriff’s office is still conducting their report and will recreate the scene to determine if the other factors play a big enough part in dropping the case. It seems safe to say the nothing will come of this case, except the Howe’s family receiving a fat settlement from Jenner just to get the lawsuit closed. It wouldn’t be surprising if the Howe family sued the driver of the Hummer for driving such a large heavy vehicle that killed their mother.
