LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors have declined to file charges against Caitlyn Jenner, who deputies said caused a chain-reaction crash on Pacific Coast Highway in February in which one motorist was killed.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office determined prosecutors would not be able to prove in court that Jenner was responsible for the crash, so they declined to file a misdemeanor manslaughter charge against her, the Los Angeles Times reported.

In August, L.A. County Sheriff’s Department Det. Richard Curry said Jenner was driving at an unsafe speed Feb. 7 when her Cadillac Escalade rear-ended Kim Howe’s Lexus, sending it into oncoming traffic, ultimately leading to the 69-year-old driver’s death.

The deadly crash near Corral Canyon Road came before Jenner announced her gender transition. At the time, she was Bruce Jenner, best known as the father figure of the Kardashian family and 1976 Olympic decathlon gold medal winner.

Prosecutors said Jenner applied her brakes 4.2 seconds before the crash and was driving slightly below the speed limit.

“Based on the facts, cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the suspect’s conduct was unreasonable,” said prosecutor Patricia Wilkinson in a declination document.

    Hey reporter,
    I don’t care what Bruce wants to call himself these days but the fact remains he is still a he. Even if he has the ol twig and giggleberries cut off, he is still a man. He can’t change his dna. That’s scientific fact. Bruce has a sickness. Replace wanting to cut off his member with a leg, arm or any other body part and it readily becomes apparent that he has a legitimate psychological problem that is only made worse by the mainstream media catering to every whim of the LGBT crowd. We all know it’s bull$&it but nobody is willing to publicly say it.
