After being named in a lawsuit that followed the tragic death of a 69-year-old driver, both the public and investigators are trying to determine if Caitlyn Jenner is really at fault. Now, video evidence of the crash in question has been released for the public to see.
The video, posted below, comes courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, which exclusively received the footage from security cameras positioned on a passing public bus that was close to the Malibu, California, incident. The footage shows the entire February accident that resulted in the death of Kim Howe.
In the video, Caitlyn Jenner’s Black Cadillac Escalade, which was towing an off-road vehicle at the time, can be seen rear-ending a white Lexus driven by the victim. The force of the impact shoved the Lexus into a head-on collision with an oncoming black Hummer. Jenner’s car also rammed into a black Prius that was driven by Jessica Steindorff.
As previously reported, both the victim’s family and Steindorff sought unspecified damages from Jenner for the incident. Jenner was uninjured in the crash, but the lawsuits that resulted from it are still hanging over her head. However, it’s unclear, even in the video, if Jenner was truly at fault. While investigators determined that Jenner was responsible for the accident, the wrongful death lawsuit might be hard to prove given that Howe’s family didn’t seem to have much contact with her prior to her death. She did submit to and passed a field sobriety test on the scene and a rep for her denied allegations that she was texting just before the crash. Meanwhile, the accident is still under investigation and Jenner has not been charged with any crimes.
