Caitlyn Jenner blasted by survivor of her fatal car accident

Although most of the world applauded Caitlyn Jenner after her powerful acceptance speech while accepting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the recent 2015 ESPYs, there was one person in attendance at the ceremony who was less than moved.

Jessica Steindorff, 29, who works as a talent manager and was present at the show, was also a driver involved in the fatal crash this past February on a Malibu highway in which Jenner’s black Cadillac Escalade smashed into the back of 69-year-old Kim Howe’s white Lexus, killing her instantly. Steindorff was driving a Prius near the scene and was also rear-ended by Jenner after she struck Howe’s vehicle.

Steindorff recently told Entertainment Tonight that she is disturbed that Jenner’s gender transition has attracted more media attention than the loss of Howe’s life and that she wants Jenner to “do the right thing and take responsibility for her actions.”

“I find it difficult to understand how the culture we live in can honor a person who is responsible for taking a life and injuring several others with both an award and a reality show,” Steindorff said. “I would hope that someone who seems to greatly value the importance of human existence would be more sensitive to the fact that she ended another person’s life.”

Investigators recently dismissed the possibility of Jenner facing felony charges for the accident ruling instead that while Jenner was inattentive, she was not drunk or texting at the time of the accident as first suspected. Jenner could still face a charge of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter in the matter.

Steindorff filed a personal injury suit against Jenner in May and Howe’s family filed a wrongful death suit claiming the 65-year-old former Olympian was “careless, reckless and negligent.”

    i souly believe he was drunk or on something i think they didnt test him at the scene of the crime giving him time to go home an clean up and then be tested later this is how the police depts operate for celebrities so scare to bring them to truth since oj simpson crime , they really dont get invovled , and yes that murder should have been the only thing anyone talked about , yet they shoved it under the majical kardashian rug, notice how kim always speak out only when tragedy hits them people find her circus ring attractive and for that reason we graitate towards her , when cant see that she is not the most beautiful woman in the world by no chance , not even close ….and her but is not the best looing either no chance is it she is built horribly and whites blew her image up due to robert kardasian , it was mean t to degrade her father legacy in stead it help her blow up … trust me bruce jenner will not be living down this crime it will surface again and again . .that is why kim them move slow to support him …

    That whole family (except for Rob) is all about fame, money and attention. Jenner does not care about what he did, accident or not. Life is now all about her. She should of said that she was sorry for the accident during her speech. But that family is hopeless they do not care what they do wrong to anybody, they are very messed up people. It is sad.
