Back when Caitlyn Jenner was still technically Bruce Jenner, he was the cause of a deadly accident outside of Los Angeles. One woman was killed when Jenner was going too fast and not fully aware of his surroundings. Now, according to reports, Jenner could be looking at prison time after investigators recommended it based on the accident scene and the evidence that Jenner set off a chain reaction of crashes.


Investigators determined Jenner was driving at a speed “unsafe for the prevailing road conditions,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said.

Jenner was hauling an off-road vehicle on a trailer behind her Cadillac Escalade on Feb. 7 when she steered to avoid cars slowing for a traffic light in front of her on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

Jenner was unable to stop in time, and her SUV rear-ended two cars, pushing a Lexus into oncoming traffic and also hitting a Toyota Prius. The driver of the Lexus, 69-year-old Kim Howe, was killed when her car was struck head-on by a Hummer.

If convicted, Jenner could face up to one year in county jail.

Investigators will present their findings to the district attorney by the end of August, and that office will determine what, if any, charges Jenner will face.

Howe’s stepchildren filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Jenner last spring, alleging “careless, negligent and reckless” driving.”

“My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident,” Jenner said in a statement released after the accident. “It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible.”

Truth is because he has no prior record, Jenner will likely never spend a day behind bars. A more interesting question however is what happens if Jenner does get some type of sentence, would “Caitlyn” go to a jail for women, or a jail for men? It was “Bruce” that caused the accident, not “Caitlyn”.
