MALIBU—New surveillance footage has emerged showing the fatal car crash Caitlyn Jenner was involved in back in February. The footage was lifted from a passing metro bus, which recorded the incident from two angles, managing to capture both Jenner’s crash into the victim’s vehicle and its collision into oncoming traffic. Kim Howe, 69, was killed on the scene while eight others were injured. Jenner was unharmed.
Caitlyn Jenner, then known as Bruce Jenner, was traveling northbound along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu when her Cadillac Escalade rear-ended a white Lexus, driven by Howe, and a black Prius, causing the former to veer off to the left and crash head-on into a Hummer.
The bus footage confirms this but also reveals a slow velocity for the two other cars compared to Jenner’s Escalade, which maintained a near constant velocity just before the moment of impact on Howe’s car. The footage, edited by TMZ, can be viewed below:
After authorities arrived, Jenner was confirmed to have not been driving under the influence during the crash. Jenner, who pledged her complete cooperation in the investigation, denied that she was texting or on her phone at the time of the collision.
A wrongful death lawsuit against the reality star was filed by the victim’s stepchildren, who said Jenner drove “negligently, carelessly, recklessly and wantonly,” which lead to the death of their stepmother. The driver of the Prius, Jessica Steindorff, has also filed a lawsuit claiming personal injury, seeking damages in the amount of $25,000.
Jenner, who won the gold medal in the Olympic decathlon event in 1976, publicly came out as a transgender woman earlier this year. A reality show centered around her life titled ‘I Am Cait’ is set to debut in the coming weeks.
