Caitlyn Jenner has reached a settlement from a lawsuit regarding her February 2015 car accident that resulted in the death of a Lexus driver named Kim Howe. Hollywood agent Jessica Steindorff sued Jenner claiming that she suffered injuries from the accident and the case has been settled.
As previously reported, the Olympian, 66 – known as Bruce Jenner at the time – crashed her Cadillac Escalade into a Lexus on the Pacific Coast Highway on February 7. The driver of the Lexus, Kim Howe, was pushed into oncoming traffic and killed.
According to TMZ, Steindorff drove one of the four cars that were involved in the crash. (In June, Steindorff claimed that she suffered serious medical injuries from the accident.) On Wednesday, she reached a settlement for an undisclosed amount with Jenner, which was reportedly paid by Jenner’s insurance company.
At the time, Jenner said, “I was under the speed limit. I was going 46 in a 50. My airbag didn’t even go off. All I probably needed was half a second of time. I almost stopped, but couldn’t quite get it stopped. I was pulling a trailer, so, no, I don’t think it was speed or anything like that. 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.”
