AP: Investigators Recommend Vehicular Manslaughter Charge Against Jenner
Shepard Smith broke in on "The Real Story" with new developments on a fatal car crash that involved Caitlyn Jenner earlier this year.
Associated Press reports that investigators will recommend Jenner be charged with vehicular manslaughter.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sheriff's investigators plan to recommend prosecutors file a vehicular manslaughter charge against Caitlyn Jenner for her role in a fatal car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu last February.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida says investigators found that Jenner was driving "unsafe for the prevailing road conditions" because her SUV rear-ended a Lexus, pushing it into oncoming traffic.
The Lexus driver, 69-year-old Kim Howe, was killed when her car was struck head-on by a Hummer.
Nishida says the case will be presented for final review next week. The district attorney will determine what charges Jenner ultimately faces.
If convicted of such a charge, Jenner would face up to one year in county jail.
