Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner ‘will only be charged with misdemeanor’ for fatal Malibu crash that left 69-year-old widow dead
Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner will only be charged with a misdemeanor for her fatal crash in February that left a 69-year-old widow dead, a report has claimed.
According to TMZ, police have concluded that no drugs, alcohol, or talking or texting on a phone were to blame for the pile-up.
Investigators will determine that merely negligence, which is not a felony, was the cause.
This means the maximum charge Jenner can face is misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.
The site claims that this is what will ultimately be presented to the DA, adding that in accident cases like this are commonly dismissed altogether.
Police came to the conclusion after studying video footage of the smash which was only made public this week.
The video captured by a passing bus shows Jenner’s Escalade hitting the Lexus driven by Kim Howe on the Pacific Coast Highway not far from Malibu, California.
Howe died in the four-car crash, which left a slew of shattered cars on the freeway. Not long after the crash it emerged that a recording existed, which was handed over to police.
