Caitlyn Jenner may be charged with manslaughter in deadly crash
LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives will present evidence next week to prosecutors that could lead to a misdemeanor manslaughter charge against Caitlyn Jenner in a deadly chain-reaction crash earlier this year on Pacific Coast Highway.
Jenner was driving at an unsafe speed Feb. 7 when her Escalade hit Kim Howe’s car, ultimately leading to the deadly crash, said Det. Richard Curry of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Jenner was not driving above the speed limit, but driving at an unsafe speed for the road conditions that day, he added.
The evidence will be presented to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office next week. Prosecutors will review the case and decide whether to formally charge Jenner. Typically, a single misdemeanor manslaughter charge could carry a sentence of a year in jail.
Blair Berk, Jenner’s attorney, declined to comment on the presentation of the evidence.
