Caitlyn Jenner Should Have to Sit for Deposition, Say Family of Driver Killed in February

Caitlyn Jenner may have received an award for courage, but the family of Kim Howe are calling her a coward for the fatal car accident she caused in February — and say that she has avoided questioning about the collision.

The former Olympic athlete and reality star from Keeping Up with the Kardashians was involved in a four-car accident on February 7.

Jenner, who at the time was known as “Bruce” and hadn’t yet come out as transgender, rear-ended Howe while driving a Cadillac Escalade down the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

Howe, a 69-year-old widow, was pushed into traffic and was hit by a Hummer in another lane, which wound up killing her.

Paparazzi snapped photos of Jenner moments before the accident, showing the Escalade towing a four wheeler. They also captured the exact moment that Jenner hit Howe and photographed the aftermath of the Hummer smashing into Howe’s Lexus.

Howe’s family wants Jenner to sit for a deposition in order to question Jenner’s involvement in the accident. They have also hired a car accident attorney to seek a settlement; in total, road crashes like Jenner’s cost the U.S. about $230.6 billion per year.

Jenner, meanwhile, said that she was being chased by the photographers, which may have played a role in the accident. Several others were also injured, including Jessica Steindorff, the driver of a Prius, who was also hit by Jenner in the accident.

Steindorff, who is a Hollywood talent manager, talked to Entertainment Tonight and took a shot at Jenner for winning the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYS a couple of weeks ago. “For an individual who is such a positive role model in many aspects of her life, Caitlyn has failed to do the right thing and take responsibility for her actions,” she told reports.

Steindorff also has a pending lawsuit against Jenner.
