Bruce Jenner Sued For Wrongful Death In Malibu Car Crash

Life’s ebb and flow can feel equally weighted and balanced or disproportionate and cruel. The latter feeling is most likely to be the case for Bruce Jenner, who has recently celebrated living openly as transgender, after a lifetime of waiting to live freely. Jenner recently granted an interview to ABC’s Diane Sawyer to discuss that transition.

Unfortunately, that celebration will be interrupted, in part, by news of a lawsuit filed recently by the stepchildren of Kim Howe. Ms. Howe was the victim, tragically killed, during the Malibu car crash in February involving Jenner. Dana Redmond and William Howe filed their wrongful death civil suit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, according to the Associated Press.

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.


The lawsuit by Dana Redmond and William Howe does not specify how much they are seeking. There are no winners or losers, here, only sadness. One life begins as another life is lost. Our sympathies go out to all involved. The crash is still under investigation.

About the Author

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well. ♦ Norrth Cafe's BlogTwitterFacebook

    Why didn’t Bruce have enough respect for the family of the woman to postpone his sex-change journey, or at least, keep it private?

    • Yes and had the audacity to appear complacent without regard for the victim’s family viewing his “coming out” party.

        It’s all about Bruce in Bruce’s mind. I cannot abide the self-absorbed.

      Didn’t he tape the interview before this happened? I also thought the taping of his VH1 series was postponed.

      • He taped this interview after the accident. Diane Sawyer said commented about the accident off camera.

    • I said the exact same thing on another site and I was called “insensitive”. BS. Glad I’m not the only one thinking the exact same thing.

    You know, I hope Bruce’s family will be just as supportive of him of his decision to becoming a woman as he is going through this tragic lawsuit.

      He’ll never be a woman no matter how hard the nut-job tries.

    Ok, brain teaser time! If he gets jail time, does he go to a woman’s prison?

      Only if his willy is gone.
