Olympian Bruce Jenner — who has recently been in the news for his transformation into a woman — was involved in a car crash during which one woman died. Five children and two adults were additionally hospitalized as a result of the incident.
Now, according to the Daily Mail, Jenner is facing manslaughter charges. It was his car that apparently hit two others, causing the deadly accident.
The outlet reported:
New video evidence in the Bruce Jenner car crash incident could spell trouble for the transitioning reality star following the four-car incident that left one person dead and seven injured on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California, earlier this month.
An MTA bus traveling behind the Hummer involved is reported to have captured the entire incident on mounted cameras, evidence that is now in the hands of the police.
Sources familiar with the video told TMZ that Jenner hits the Lexus, propelling it into a Hummer coming the other way. Jenner then continues on and hits the Prius.
If correct, the MTA video makes a more compelling case that Jenner was following too close, which opens the door to a possible vehicular manslaughter prosecution.
Malibu-based detectives have opened a homicide investigation. Whoever is found guilty will most likely be charged with a felony; if convicted, that individual could face up to six years behind bars.
The Daily Mail further reported that Jenner’s Cadillac crashed into the back of another car:
The identities of those involved in the horror crash have not yet been confirmed but MailOnline can exclusively reveal that the woman who died is believed to be 69-year-old Kim Howe. She has not yet been formally identified, but has been named locally. Ms Howe, a widow, is believed to be neighbours with the Kardashians and lives in the same Calabasas hideaway as Kourtney, Robert and Khloe Kardashian, which is guarded by security at the road entrance.
It is still not known if Jenner was texting at the time. Jenner took a roadside sobriety test following the wreck.
Apparently Ms Howe lived in the same gated community as some of the Kardashian family members.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star shares the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom 9,214 square foot property with her brother Rob, who has his own private wing away from the main house.
Ms Howe, whose Calabasas house on Prado De La Mariposa is valued at $4,800,000, owns a number of properties including one in Malibu that faces onto the Pacific Ocean, though neighbours say the place has been left abandoned for three years because of a mold problem.
