Caitlyn Jenner 'will not be prosecuted for manslaughter'

Caitlyn Jenner will most likely not be prosecuted for vehicular manslaughter, a new report has claimed. The 65-year-old was involved in a fatal multi-car accident in February that left one woman dead and seven injured.

Kris Jenner's ex was driving a black Escalade on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu when she crashed into a Lexus, which was subsequently pushed into oncoming traffic and collided with a Hummer. The driver of the Lexus, 69-year-old Kim Howe, died at the scene.

Prosecutors have been deciding whether Caitlyn should be charged for her role in the crash, but according to TMZ, she will not be prosecuted.

"It is a devastating tragedy," Caitlyn Jenner said at the time of the February accident

Sources close to the L.A. County D.A.'s Office – who are reviewing the case – have reportedly determined that Caitlyn's conduct was negligent, but not criminal.

The final outcome will rely on the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept., who have allegedly reached the same decision and will not prosecute.

The D.A. Jackie Lacey may choose to ignore the conclusions and go forward by filing criminal charges and take Caitlyn to court, but TMZ sources say that's highly unlikely.

It has previously been stated that the TV star was not using her phone during the crash, and Caitlyn herself has said she was not speeding.

Speaking about the accident in an interview with Today's Matt Lauer, Caitlyn said: "I remember it very little, I remember it happening and that's about it. A tragedy like this, you'll never get over it. You just learn to live with it the best you possibly can."

The star, who was formerly known as Olympian Bruce Jenner, added: "I was under the speed limit, I was going 46 in a 50 – my air bag didn't even go off."

At the time Caitlyn expressed her "deepest sympathy" in a statement released by her publicist.

"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," Caitlyn wrote. "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."
