Caitlyn Jenner Suing Prius Driver Jessica Steindorff In Fatal Multi-Vehicle Car Crash
Caitlyn Jenner is now suing Jessica Steindorff, the driver of the Prius involved in last year’s fatal multi-vehicle crash on the Pacific Coast Highway, just weeks after the reality star settled a lawsuit brought by Steindorff against her. As Gossip Cop reported at the end of December, Jenner and her insurance company settled with Steindorff for an undisclosed amount for the damage to the latter’s Prius and injuries she sustained.
Now, Jenner has filed a suit against Steindorff, alleging the Prius driver was partially responsible for the February 2015 crash that resulted in a Lexus driver named Kim Howe being struck from behind by the former Olympian and careening into oncoming traffic, where she was hit by a Hummer and died on the scene. Jenner says in her suit that Steindorff is liable because she waited too long at the green light, partially precipitating the events that transpired behind her with the Lexus and Jenner’s car.
Jenner wants Steindorff to also be on the hook because, as Gossip Cop reported, while the reality star already settled with Howe’s stepchildren and Steindorff, she’s still in litigation with the driver and passengers of the Hummer, who claimed her negligence caused the crash. The thought is, if Steindorff is also to blame, she would then have to pay part of the settlement with the Hummer driver and passengers.
