Sheriff’s investigators plan to recommend that prosecutors file a vehicular manslaughter charge against Caitlyn Jenner for her role in a fatal car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu last February.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said investigators found that Jenner was driving “unsafe for the prevailing road conditions” because her SUV rear-ended a Lexus, pushing it into oncoming traffic.
The Lexus driver, 69-year-old Kim Howe, was killed when her car was hit head-on by a Hummer.
Nishida says the case will be presented for final review next week. The district attorney will determine what charges Jenner ultimately faces.
Doherty lawsuit says she has cancer
Shannen Doherty is battling breast cancer that worsened during a lapse in her health insurance caused by her former business managers, the actress alleges in a lawsuit. The former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star says her former business managers and accountants mismanaged her money and allowed her health insurance to lapse last year. Because of that, she said she didn’t go to the doctor until she had insurance and there was a delay in diagnosing her cancer, which will likely require more extensive treatments, including a possible mastectomy and chemotherapy. Doherty, 44, got the diagnosis in March and her doctors have said earlier treatment might have stopped its spread, the lawsuit says. An attorney for the accounting firm Tanner Mainstain Glynn & Johnson denied the company caused Doherty’s health insurance to lapse.
