Caitlyn Jenner Settles Kim Howe Car Crash Lawsuit With Stepchildren
Caitlyn Jenner settled her lawsuit on Thursday with William Howe and Dana Redmond, the stepchildren of Kim Howe, who died during Jenner’s multi-car wreck on the Pacific Coast Highway last February.
As Gossip Cop reported, Kim Howe was killed in the car crash after Jenner’s Escalade smashed into the back of her Lexus, causing in to veer into oncoming traffic in the opposite lane, where it was struck by a Hummer. Howe was pronounced dead at the scene. Her stepchildren later filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Jenner, who argued the case had no merit and should be dismissed because neither William nor Dana had a close relationship with Howe, nor did they depend on her financially.
Howe and Redmond’s lawsuit was dismissed on Thursday because the two stepchildren had reaching an undisclosed settlement with Jenner. Since the compensation was fully covered by her insurance company, Jenner did not have to personally pay for the stepchildren’s alleged damages.
As Gossip Cop has also reported, Jenner settled a separate lawsuit in December with Jessica Steindorff, the driver of a Prius that was also involved in the reality star’s fatal crash. Steindorff, whose vehicle was nearly totaled in the wreck, noted in her legal papers that she was seeking compensation for both property damage and personal injuries suffered. The amount of that settlement was similarly undisclosed, and Jenner’s insurance company covered the costs in that case as well.
