LA Prosecutors Confirm, Caitlyn Jenner Will Not Face Charges In Fatal Car Crash On PCH, Highlight Hollywood News

Pacific-Coast-Highway
Caitlyn Jenner is now able to legally change her name and gender, a California judge has decided.    Prosecutors say they have declined to charge Caitlyn Jenner in fatal car crash on PCH in Southern California.   “We believed from the start that a thorough and objective investigation would clear Caitlyn of any criminal wrongdoing,” said Blair Berk, Jenner’s attorney, in a statement to Highlight Hollywood. “We are heartened the district attorney has agreed that even a misdemeanor charge would be inappropriate.
A traffic accident, however devastating and heartbreaking when a life is lost, is not necessarily a criminal matter.”  In February, Jenner was hauling an off-road vehicle on a trailer behind her Cadillac Escalade when she steered to avoid cars slowing for a traffic light in front of her on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

Jenner’s SUV rear-ended two cars, pushing the Lexus into oncoming traffic and also hitting a Prius. The Lexus driver, 69-year-old Kim Howe, was killed when her car was struck head-on by a Hummer. Investigators had found that Jenner was driving “unsafely for the prevailing road conditions.” She faced up to a year in county jail if convicted of vehicular manslaughter.
The fatal crash occurred months before Caitlyn Jenner’s transition.
