Legal decision: Caitlyn Jenner, seen here in June, was involved in the deadly car crash in February, before she went public with her transition. The LA District Attorney is determining if she'll face charges
The reality star was driving a Cadillac Escalade and towing a trailer carrying an off-road vehicle on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu when he rear-ended a Lexus being driven by Howe.
The impact sent the car into oncoming traffic where it was hit head-on by a Hummer.
The senior citizen died at the scene.
The police recommendation for the vehicular manslaughter charge is based on how fast Jenner was going at the time of the crash, a speed detectives believe was unsafe.
Deadly chain reaction: The crash resulted in the death of the 69-year-old Kimberly Howe, whose white Lexus, pictured, was rear-ended by Jenner and pushed into opposing traffic where it was hit by a Hummer
Sheriff's Det. Richard Curry told the newspaper last week that while Jenner was driving within the speed limit, the former Olympian was still driving too fast for the road conditions that day.
However, it's unlikely that a jail term would be handed down in this case, according to the Times.
In addition to Howe's death, seven other people were injured in the accident which occurred when a Toyota Prius came to a stop in an intersection for unknown reasons.
Jenner slammed into the Lexus waiting to move behind the Prius sparking the chain-reaction crash.
Lost life: Kim Howe, 69, who was driving a white Lexus, pictured right after the crash, died at the scene. Her stepchildren have a filed a lawsuit against Jenner claiming the reality star's negligence caused Howe's death
A police investigation concluded that while Jenner was traveling within the speed limit, her vehicle, seen above bottom right with a trailer attached, was going too fast to be safe given the road conditions on February 7
In the aftermath of the crash, Howe's stepchildren filed a lawsuit against Jenner, saying she was driving at an unsafe speed and that her negligence caused the senior citizen's death.
When interviewed by police after the crash, Jenner told them she was being followed by paparazzi but was not trying to evade them.
There were also reports that Jenner was on her phone at the time of the crash, something her lawyer has denied.
Bruce was driving: The deadly crash occurred before the former Olympian went public with her transgender transition. The decathlon gold medalist is seen here in February a couple of weeks after the crash
Damaged: Jenner was towing an off-road vehicle on a trailer behind his Cadillac Escalade as he drove along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. The damage caused by the impact with Howe's Lexus is visible in this picture
Whats to decide, he took a life, not to mention he broke the law by driving while talking on his cell phone. If this man gets off, on any of these charges, im done, the justice system is unfair and an injust.
The courts do not trust in God that's why they are so corrupt. they may as well make some changes to that in god we trust sign hanging over the judges head and write in god we don't trust. fshame.
