As you may know, Caitlyn Jenner is involved with three lawsuits over her involvement in a fatal multi-car crash. Now, she has settled one of those three court cases.
Hollywood agent Jessica Steindorff, who represents supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, was the plaintiff in the suit. The amount that was settled upon wasn’t disclosed, but we do know that Steindorff was seeking compensation for property damages, lost wages and medical expenses, plus punitive damages of $25,000. Apparently, it will be Jenner’s insurance company who will be paying the damages.
Steindorff was driving down Pacific Coast Highway on Feb 7, when she was rear ended by a Lexus driven by local realtor Kim Howe. Jenner, who was driving a Cadillac Escalade, crashed into the Lexus and pushed it into incoming traffic. The Lexus was then struck by an oncoming Hummer, killing Howe instantly.
Steindorff alleged in her complaint that Jenner’s vehicle continued after hitting Howe’s car and hit her car, resulting in damage to the car and injuries to her person.
As was mentioned at the start of this article, there are still two remaining lawsuits against Jenner that have yet to be settled. These have been filed against her by Howe’s family and the driver of the Hummer that hit Howe.
Jenner has faced charges of manslaughter for her involvement in the crash, but the Los Angeles County District Attorney decided not to pursue the case.
