Caitlyn Jenner will not be charged with vehicular manslaughter

The Los Angeles District Attorney has confirmed that they will not be pressing charges for vehicular manslaughter or any other crimes against 65-year-old Caitlyn Jenner for the fatal car crash on Pacific Coast Highway, which occured in February in Malibu, California.

Jenner was not charged because the “suspect was traveling at a speed slightly below posted speed limit and minimally slower than victim. Crime requires violation of misdemeanor or infraction. Only possible violation is a violation of the basic speed law. Crime also requires ordinary negligence. Based on the facts, cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the suspect’s conduct was unreasonable.”

The fatal car crash occurred on Malibu’s Pacific Coast Highway when she rear ended a Lexus being driven by Kimberly Howe. The Lexus spun or veered into oncoming traffic was hit head-on by a Hummer. Howe died on the scene.
