Prosecutors declined to charge Caitlyn Jenner in a California car crash


Prosecutors declined to charge Caitlyn Jenner on Wednesday in a
California car crash that led to the death of another driver, saying
there was not enough evidence for a conviction.


Authorities said Jenner was towing an off-road vehicle on a trailer
behind a Cadillac Escalade on Feb. 7 when she crashed into two cars,
pushing one into oncoming traffic. Driver Kim Howe was killed when her
Lexus was hit by a Hummer.

“We believed from the start that a thorough and objective investigation
would clear Caitlyn of any criminal wrongdoing,” said Blair Berk,
Jenner’s attorney.

“We are heartened the district attorney has agreed that even a
misdemeanor charge would be inappropriate. A traffic accident, however
devastating and heartbreaking when a life is lost, is not necessarily a
criminal matter.”

 The D.A. rejected the case, saying she was not speeding, she hit the
brakes though belatedly, and her conduct was not “unreasonable” based on
all the facts.
