Caitlyn Jenner Won’t Face Charges Over Fatal Car Crash

As recently as three weeks ago, Caitlyn Jenner was downplaying her role in a fatal car crash on the PCH in Malibu earlier this year that left one woman dead and four other people seriously injured. The family of the woman who died has been trying to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Caitlyn Jenner for a while now, but there was also the possibility that she was going to face manslaughter charges by the state. It was pretty clearly Jenner’s fault, but now the state prosecutor has decided there isn’t enough evidence to move forward, and therefore Jenner won’t face charges.

From TMZ:

The D.A. has 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.

Jenner was driving inattentively when she slammed into a Lexus, sending the car into oncoming traffic where it struck a Hummer. The Lexus driver died at the scene.

The accident was put under a microscope … the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. investigated the accident for almost 6 months before submitting a 161-page report to the D.A. The case was reviewed not by the D.A.’s Van Nuys satellite office — which would normally handle such cases — but by the Major Crimes Unit at D.A. headquarters in downtown L.A.

Jenner’s lawyer, Blair Berk, tells TMZ, ‘We believed from the start that a thorough and objective investigation would clear Caitlyn of any criminal wrongdoing.” Berk adds, “We are heartened the District Attorney has agreed that even a misdemeanor charge would not be appropriate.”

Berk goes on, “A traffic accident, however devastating and heartbreaking when a life is lost, is not necessarily a criminal matter.

Sorry, but I feel as though this is just another case of “rich (white) person with money not held responsible for their crimes”. I’m not saying Jenner deserves to spend the rest of her life behind bars or anything, but zero charges for such a serious accident that likely could have been prevented if it weren’t for her negligence? Yeah, sorry, you should have to deal with consequences for that, just like the victims and their families have had to.

  • You have a racism problem, Jennifer. You use every excuse to bring it up, insert it, and so on. What, are you black/oriental/Mexican? Try to get over yourself.

    Back to our regularly scheduled program.

    Bruce, Bruce, Bah-rooooose! What have you done!!!???

    • So true, she suffers from one of the worst types of white savior complex, she thinks it makes her above it, and has such minimal understanding. She is a blog equivalent to Macklemore’s text to Kendrick Lamar. This could have easily been rich person gets off, given the time she takes writing about how Chris Brown so rarely faces punishment. Caitlyn should serve time for this, end of, but isn’t, due to money.

      Wish you hadn’t have said oriental or Mexican though, but I think you were using that wording to drive down the point
