Bruce Jenner is sued for wrongful death

Bruce Jenner is being sued by the family of a woman killed in a car crash in February.

The adult stepchildren of victim Kim Howe have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, who allegedly smashed into her Lexus and caused it to collide head on with a Hummer on the Pacific Coast Highway in California earlier this year.

The duo, who reportedly "had virtually no relationship" with their stepmother, have accused the 65-year-old Olympian, who recently revealed he is transgender, of being "careless and negligent" and of speeding at the time.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is still investigating the accident, but law enforcement sources previously claimed Bruce was driving below the speed limit.

Police officers, who obtained video of the crash, believe the star simply wasn't looking when he hit the Lexus and it is unlikely he will be prosecuted.

Bruce expressed his devastation over the crash shortly after it occurred.

He said: "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."
