Caitlyn Jenner settles in lawsuit over fatal car crash

CAITLYN Jenner has settled a lawsuit filed against her.

The 66-year-old reality television star was involved in a car crash which killed Kim Howe when her vehicle was shunted into oncoming traffic.

Kim's adult stepchildren William and Dana had filed a wrongful death suit against the 'I Am Cait' star, but the duo and Caitlyn both filed to dismiss the case on Thursday (28.01.16), according to TMZ.com.

The outlet reports that a "very modest amount" was paid to William and Dana, but it came out of insurance rather than being paid directly by Cailtyn.

After the pair initially filed the lawsuit, Caitlyn filed documents insisting they didn't deserve compensation because they didn't lose anything when Kim died as they never depended on their stepmother to pay for essentials such as food, shelter, medical treatment or clothing.

The duo, who allegedly "had virtually no relationship" with their stepmother, accused Caitlyn of being "careless and negligent" and of speeding when the accident happened.

News of this lawsuit being dropped comes after Jessica Steindorff, the driver of a Prius involved in the pile-up, dropped her lawsuit against Cailtyn for personal injury and property damage after her insurance company once again paid out.

Caitlyn has been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing in relation to the crash.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney (D.A.) decided not to charge the reality star with vehicular manslaughter and officially rejected the case because she wasn't speeding and her conduct was not "unreasonable" when she "set off a chain of events" that resulted in the death of Kim in the multi-car pile-up on the Pacific Coast Highway.
