There’s been a new development in the investigation surrounding Caitlyn Jenner’s car crash, that left one person dead and several injured.
According to Det. Richard Curry of the L.A. Sheriff’s office, his department will soon present a case to the Los Angeles D.A.’s office regarding Jenner driving at an unsafe speed that ultimately killed 69-year-old Kimberly Howe.
The Sheriff’s office will present evidence which prosecutors will review, to decide whether or not to file vehicular manslaughter charges. Typically this charge could be a misdemeanor manslaughter charge, but ultimately that is up to the D.A. to decide. Jenner could serve the maximum sentence of one year in jail, should she be convicted of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.
The deadly car crash occurred on Saturday, Feb. 7, on Malibu’s Pacific Coast Highway, while the “I Am Cait” star was cruising down the coast in her Cadillac Escalade. Four cars and over half a dozen people were involved in the collision.
Days after the tragic pileup, Jenner released a statement saying, “My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident. It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible.”
In May, Jenner was named in a wrongful death lawsuit stemming from the incident. What do you think of the most recent development in Jenner’s case? Should she be sent to the clinker for the accident that claimed Howe’s life? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
