The legal battles that Caitlyn Jenner faces over a deadly car crash in Malibu are still mounting.
Jenner, who has been sued by the stepchildren of Kim Howe, who was killed in the Feburary crash, is now being sued by a third driver involved in the collision.
In legal papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, Jessica Steindorff, whose Prius was hit in the collision on the Pacific Coast Highway, claims Jenner — listed in the papers as “Bruce Jenner a/k/a Caitlyn Jenner” — caused her to suffer several physical injuries.
The suit, obtained by TheWrap, claims that Jenner “negligently, carelessly, recklessly and wantonly drove … so as to legally cause a collision with plaintiff while she was within her vehicle.”
Earlier this year, former Olympian Jenner — who introduced her new identity to the world on the cover of Vanity Fair last week — was sued by Dana Redmond and William Howe, Kim Howe’s stepchildren. That suit alleges that Jenner’ vehicle hit Howe’s car, pushing it into oncoming traffic.
According to the earlier suit, Howe’s death “caused plaintiffs to suffer enormous damages and losses.”
Jenner’s legal team has fired back in that suit, claiming that the stepchildren are grown, successful adults who weren’t financially dependent on Howe — a claim that the stepchildren attempted to shoot down in their own subsequent filing.
