Investigators recommend manslaughter charge against Caitlyn Jenner

PUBLISHED Thu, August 20, 2015 - 3:01pm EDT

Sheriff's investigators plan to recommend that prosecutors file a vehicular manslaughter charge against reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner for her role in a fatal car crash near Los Angeles in February, the Associated Press is reporting. Sheriff's department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida told AP that investigators found that Jenner was driving "unsafe for the prevailing road conditions" because her SUV rear-ended a Lexus, pushing it into oncoming traffic.

The accident, which involved a total of four vehicles, happened just after noon on February 7 on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. Kim Howe, 69, was the driver of the Lexus and was killed when her car was struck head-on by a Hummer. Five other people were transported to a local hospital to be treated for injuries.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office will ultimately determine whether Jenner will be charged. If charged with vehicular manslaughter and convicted, Jenner would face up to one year in county jail.
