Stepkids of crash victim sue Jenner – Albuquerque Journal

LOS ANGELES – The stepchildren of a woman killed in an automobile crash involving Bruce Jenner sued the Olympic gold medalist Friday for wrongful death, claiming they have suffered enormous damages.

The lawsuit provides no new details about the February crash, which authorities said occurred when Jenner’s sport utility vehicle collided with the woman’s car, pushing it into oncoming traffic. Kim Howe, 69, died at the scene.

The lawsuit by Dana Redmond and William Howe does not specify how much they are seeking. They claim Jenner was negligent when his vehicle collided with their stepmother’s car, causing them and other relatives “great losses.”

Jenner’s publicist, Alan Nierob, declined to comment.

Jenner, 65, has not been charged in the case. An investigation is ongoing.

A week ago, millions watched Jenner tell Diane Sawyer in a TV interview that he identifies as a woman and has felt gender confusion since he was a boy.

Jenner won the gold medal in the 1976 Olympic decathlon and is known to a younger generation for his role in the reality TV series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
