Investigators to recommend Caitlyn Jenner face manslaughter
by Ryan Newton
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sheriff's investigators plan to recommend prosecutors file a vehicular manslaughter charge against Caitlyn [sic] Jenner for her [sic] role in a fatal car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu last February, officials said Thursday.
Investigators found that Jenner was driving "unsafe for the prevailing road conditions" because her [sic] SUV rear-ended a Lexus, pushing it into oncoming traffic, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said.
Jenner was hauling an off-road vehicle on a trailer behind her [sic] Cadillac Escalade on Feb. 7 when she [sic] steered to avoid cars slowing for a traffic light in front of her [sic] on Pacific Coast Highway.
Jenner's SUV rear-ended two cars, pushing a Lexus into oncoming traffic.
The Lexus driver, 69-year-old Kim Howe, was killed when her car was struck head-on by a Hummer.
The case will be presented to prosecutors for final review next week, Nishida said. The district attorney's office will determine what charges Jenner ultimately faces.
If convicted of such a charge, Jenner could face up to one year in county jail. [In the men’s or women’s jail?]
Jenner's attorney Blair Berk declined comment.
The fatal crash occurred months before Caitlyn Jenner's transition. She [sic] was formerly known as Bruce Jenner, the 1976 Olympic decathlon champion and Kim Kardashian's stepfather.
