Caitlyn Jenner Faces a Second Lawsuit for February Car Crash

Screen Shot 2015-02-07 at 4.55.24 PMIn May, Caitlyn Jenner was slapped with a wrongful death lawsuit for the car crash in February that caused the death of Kim Howe. Talent manager Jessica Steindorff was driving the second car that was caught in the accident, and on Monday, she filed a suit of her own.

Jenner rear-ended Steindorff’s Prius on the Pacific Coast Highway at the end of the chain-reaction that sent Howe’s car towards oncoming traffic. Though Steindorff’s suit didn’t specify the nature of her injuries from the crash, her statement alleges that Jenner’s “negligent” driving resulted in physical harm, lost wages, and $25,000 worth of property damage and medical expenses.

The suit filed by Howe’s step-children remains separate from Steindorff’s, though they also place blame for the accident on Jenner’s “careless and negligent” speeding. Jenner previously expressed her regrets for Howe’s death, but has asked for the case to be thrown out.

Jenner made her debut as Caitlyn last week with a photo spread in Vanity Fair.
