Caitlyn Jenner Reaches Settlement With Woman Caught in February Car Crash

jennerCaitlyn Jenner has been in the news quite a bit this year, not only for her very public transition, but also for her part in a major fatal car crash in Malibu. Yesterday, Jenner resolved one of the lawsuits she’s been facing for the incident by reaching a settlement with one of the drivers in the accident.

Since February, Jenner has faced two lawsuits for negligent driving, while also barely avoiding being charged with vehicular manslaughter. Kim Howe was killed in the four-car collision, and Hollywood agent Jessica Steindorff launched a suit demanding compensation for lost wages, earning capacity, and the medical expenses she incurred.

Prosecutors decided in September not to bring charges, citing insufficient evidence. And now, according to ET, Jenner has reached a settlement with Steindorff.

Her insurance company is reportedly covering the damages to Steindorff.

The court documents also revealed that Jenner will provide deposition for other cases resulting from the crash, including the one filed by Howe’s stepchildren.

“I remember it happening. That’s about it. A tragedy like this, you’ll never get over it. You just learn to live with it the best you possibly can,” Jenner said in a previous interview on Today. She also gave a statement after the incident, saying “I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them.”
