While the world has been focused on Caitlyn Jenner’s “I Am Cait” reality show and dramatic family life, Jenner herself has been juggling her brand-new life as an openly transgender woman with  troubling investigation involving a deadly car crash she was in back in February. Although Jenner seemed like she was clear of any charges last month, the threat of prosecution still loomed over her head. That is until now as a new report says Jenner is finally out of the blue.

As previously reported, the accident took place on Feb. 7, 2015, on the Malibu Pacific Coast Highway when Jenner’s Cadillac Escalade and four other cars were involved in a major pileup. Jenner’s car ran at a high rate of speed into a Lexus on Pacific Coast Highway, pushing the car of 69-year-old Kimberly Howe into oncoming traffic, killing her.

Last month, it was reported that although there was evidence to prove that Jenner pumped her breaks several seconds before the collision, the L.A. County D.A. still had the option to file manslaughter charges against Jenner for violating the speed law by not slowing down quickly enough.

According to TMZ though, sources say that the people assigned to review Jenner’s case have determined that she displayed negligence, but her actions weren’t criminal. The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, which investigated the case, also came to the same conclusion about Jenner.

The D.A. could still ignore both entities and act of her own volition to prosecute Jenner, but that’s highly unlikely. So it looks like Jenner is finally off the hook in the case.
