Caitlyn Jenner Cleared of Wrongdoing in February Car Crash
Caitlyn Jenner can breathe a huge sigh of relief. The 65-year-old learned today she will not be charged with vehicular manslaughter — or any other criminal charge.
After reviewing her involvement in a February car crash that took the life of one woman, 69-year-old Kim Howe, the Los Angeles County District Attorney has found Caitlyn’s behavior leading up to the crash was not “unreasonable.” As such, they find no cause to bring charges against the former Olympian.
This is obviously a huge weight off Caitlyn’s shoulders, though it seems her legal representation wasn’t too worried.
“We believed from the start that a thorough and objective investigation would clear Caitlyn of any criminal wrongdoing," Cait’s lawyer Blair Berk tells TMZ. "We are heartened the District Attorney has agreed that even a misdemeanor charge would not be appropriate."
Cait’s lawyer continues, "A traffic accident, however devastating and heartbreaking when a life is lost, is not necessarily a criminal matter."
Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean Caitlyn can put this all behind her for good. The crash victim’s surviving family members have promised to pursue a wrongful death civil case against Caitlyn.
