Bruce Jenner Asks Judge to Throw Out Wrongful Death Lawsuit After Malibu Car Crash

Bruce Jenner, 65, has filed a motion requesting the court toss the wrongful death lawsuit suit filed against him by the family of the woman he killed in February on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. California.

The car crash left, Kimberly Howe, 69, dead and five others injured.

As we previously reported, earlier this month, Howe’s two stepchildren, William Howe, 57, and Dana Redmond, 60, filed the lawsuit alleging that the impact of Jenner’s SUV “propelled” her into the other lane.

The lawsuit claims Bruce was “careless and negligent” when he slammed into Howe’s Lexus on Pacific Coast Highway back in February, causing Howe’s vehicle to bolt into oncoming traffic where it crashed head on with a Hummer. Law enforcement sources conclude that the following reenactment of the crash squarely lays blame on Bruce for being inattentive when he struck the Lexus.

Jenner, responded to the family’s suit stating they lack standing to assert a wrongful death claim because they were “not financially dependent upon the decedent for the necessities of life.” Jenner claims their family connection to the victim does not give them the right to sue for wrongful death.

The lawsuit by Dana Redmond and William Howe does not specify how much they are seeking.

    I cannot believe him.. This really shows that he doesn’t care that a person died because of his negligence.. He’s more concerned about how he is going to tell each tabloid about his post surgery pains and sensations than about killing a living soul..

      I agree. This shows you this “accident” was not an accident. Bruce intentionally killed this innocent woman as a satanic sacrifice to become a woman. It was his evil offering to his Gods.

          That’s funny, wasn’t there a vehicle in front of the women that Bruce hit who stopped on the highway, did Bruce call on his Gods to make her stop?

          • The woman Bruce killed was a safe distance away from the vehicle in front of her. Had she been closer she would have smashed head on to the vehicle in front of her. Probably would have saved her life.

          • Nancy Krystofik

            I haven’t heard that Bruce was charged. I just don’t think he hit her on purpose for any reason, especially a sacrifice to his God.

          • Hi Nancy. I didn’t state Bruce was charged or made any sacrifices to his God. LOL.

          You are so much nicer than I was going to be. I am backing away….

      • Rochelle Barozzi

        WOW

      • Oh dear Lord! *grabs holy water after reading this*

    This “accident” was not an accident. Bruce intentionally killed this innocent woman as a satanic sacrifice to become a woman himself. I wish he would have taken his disgraceful secret to the grave and spare his kids the embarrassment. His biological kids are traumatized and deeply saddened by their father’s selfish choice. I don’t understand why people are treating his psychological disorder as normal.

    Is this incident still under investigation? Could Bruce be charged with manslaughter?

    • RHONJ Fan

      I read somewhere that he was cleared of vehicle manslaughter charges.

    • It was Bruce’s fault and he needs to be charged. Bruce wasn’t paying attention and was following to close behind Kim. He then rammed her car into oncoming traffic. Kim hit the hummer head on.

  • RHONJ Fan

    Bruce’s greed is disgusting. The least he could do is show some remorse and settle with the family. The fact he’s fighting the family proves he has none to little guilt for his actions.

    Bruce needs to pay, that lady’s death because of him. I haven’t been financially dependent on my parents for many years but I would want some kind of justice if someone took their lives. Criminally most importantly. I hope he loses his counter motion.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    If Bruce gets away with this then shame on that police department. Just like OJ, money controls who goes to jail and who doesn’t. He caused the accident, so he should be charged with manslaughter.

    Oooff!!! The Kartrashian’s/Jenner’s don’t do well with losing control of situations. I especially love his “I am Bruce/BettyLou Jenner and I WILL be heard”. The ole’ Kartrashian/Jenner sense of entitlement at it’s finest.

  • colleen

    Was Bruce arrested? What happens to sober people when they get into fatal crash? Seriously…. I dunno

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    Of course she would request this, why not at least try to get away with it. This is the first step. She should pay!

    • Kay

      The reason not to try to get away with it could be remorse for killing a person

  • Livie1

    I have no respect for Jenner. I would have crawled into a hole and stayed there for awhile if I’d been involved in something like this. For certain, staying out of spotlight, whether there was truly negligence on Jenner’s part or not, would have conveyed some indication of respect or empathy for the loss of a life and injury to others hurt in the accident. I guess the court will have the final say but as an outsider looking in, I’m pretty sure if the situation was reversed, you can bet Jenner’s family would be suing for wrongful death.
