Bruce Jenner Charged for Negligent Driving

"Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star, Bruce Jenner, has landed in the soup after a wrongful death suit was filed against him by the stepchildren of a woman whose vehicle he rammed into, on the Southern California highway in February.

Bruce Jenner, 65, shot to fame, when, in the Summer Games in Montreal in 1976 he earned the sobriquet of the World’s Greatest Athlete, after clinching gold in the decathlon event. The present legal action comes a week after the Olympian-turned-reality star’s revelation in an interview with Diane Sawyer on national television, that he is a transgender and intended transitioning from male to female.

The suit has been brought by the stepkids of the deceased women, who was identified as Kimberly Howe. The car crash that took place on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on the ill-fated day of February 7 injured as many as five people other than Howe. The accident is now under the review of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The six-page suit states that Jenner was careless, negligent and reckless in driving his Cadillac Escalade, in contrast to the victim acting with due caution, attention and care. Jenner struck the victim’s Lexus from behind. Following this, the victim lost control of her vehicle and smashed into the oncoming traffic, resulting in a head-on collision with a hummer. The wrongful death claim filed by the stepdaughter, Dana Redmond and stepson, William Howe, seeks unspecified damages for the personal loss of Howe and her financial support to her stepchildren.

The deceased, Kimberly Howe, was identified as running a national health food business, along with her deceased husband of 32 years. It was also found out that she had previously played small parts in several Elvis Presley movies.
