Bruce Jenner sued for wrongful death over fatal car crash

The stepchildren of a woman killed in a car crash involving Bruce Jenner have sued the US Olympic gold medallist.

The wrongful death case was filed on Friday in Los Angeles by the stepchildren of Kim Howe, whose car was pushed into oncoming traffic after Jenner's sport utility vehicle collided with it on Pacific Coast Highway on 7 February.

The lawsuit by Dana Redmond and William Howe does not specify how much they are seeking, but states they have sustained "enormous damages".

According to E! Online, Dana and William are demanding a jury trial and unspecified damages. They say Howe's death caused them to lose "the love, affection, support, comfort, society, financial support and more from [Howe] upon whom they were dependent" and incur other expenses "to their great detriment."

Jenner's publicist Alan Nierob declined to comment.

Jenner has not been charged in the case, and an investigation is ongoing.

According to CNN, shortly after the accident Nierob provided a statement from Jenner to the family.

It read: "My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident.

"It is a devastating tragedy, and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible."
