Vogue Poser Bruce Jenner Sued For Manslaughter (pic)

Jun 1, 2015

While Bruce Jenner is spending a fortune to look like a Vogue model, the family of a woman he negligently killed this winter hopes he’s keeping some of his millions to compensate them for her wrongful death

On February 7, 2015, the 65-year-old former Olympian-turned-reality-star collided into the back of a sedan being driven by Kimberly Howe, causing her to fatally careen into the path of oncoming traffic.

Although Jenner himself wasn’t injured in the impact, it set off a four-car accident that sent a handful of other motorists and two children to the hospital, and Howe herself to the city morgue.

"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," he later said in a carefully worded statement issued after the deadly crash.

California officials then claimed they opened a vehicular manslaughter investigation to determine the precise sequence of events that led to Kimberly Howe’s killing -- and who all is to blame for it -- but the results of that alleged probe haven’t been released yet.

However, as a matter of law, his victim’s family is now holding Jenner culpably liable for recklessly driving too fast to halt his Cadillac in a timely fashion. Especially where the stretch of familiar highway he was traveling on is known to be treacherous, and when a slower speed would have either prevented the rear-ending altogether or lessened its severity.

Drivers are responsible for the safe operation of their vehicles at all times, including sudden stops, so whenever they rear-end another vehicle it’s considered their fault; a liability for which they’re expected to provide appropriate financial compensation.

So far though, the only thing Bruce Jenner has paid Kimberly Howe’s grieving relatives is lip service.
