In February, Bruce Jenner was involved in a car accident on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. The three-car pileup left one person dead and five injured. Various reports emerged about the circumstances that led to the accident, and Jenner released a statement offering his deepest sympathies to the families of those affected by the crash. Now, TMZ is reporting that the stepchildren of the woman who died in the accident have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Bruce Jenner.  Per TMZ, "the two adult stepkids of Kim Howe have filed a lawsuit, claiming Bruce was 'careless and negligent' when he slammed into Howe's Lexus on PCH  back in February, causing it to careen into oncoming traffic where it collided head on with a Hummer...The lawsuit claims Jenner was speeding, however, that contradicts what law enforcement told [TMZ, which is] that Bruce was driving below the speed limit." TMZ has been reporting on various details of the accident since it occurred, and it previously mentioned that the two stepchildren in question had "virtually no relationship" with Howe. Therefore, the "loss of affection" damages they're trying to claim would be hard to prove.  Police are still investigating the accident, and the L.A. County D.A. will also review the file for possible prosecution. (TMZ) Ed note: In his recent interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce Jenner said he identifies as a woman and wants to continue using male pronouns. It's our policy to call everyone by the pronouns they prefer, and so until Jenner tells us differently, we'll use "he" and "his" in our coverage.
