Caitlyn Jenner Is Being Sued Yet Again For Deadly Car Accident.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A family who suffered serious injuries in a fatal traffic collision involving Caitlyn Jenner earlier this year sued the Olympic gold medalist on Friday. Music industry vet Peter Wolf-Millesi, his wife Lea Wolf-Millesi and Lea’s mother Elga Maurer, who was also in their vehicle, are suing Jenner for injuries they allegedly suffered after Kim Howe’s Lexus struck their vehicle.

Caitlyn Jenner is being sued for negligence by a Malibu family who say they suffered injuries following the fatal February Malibu four-car crash that left 69-year-old Kim Howe dead.In a suit filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, members of the Wolf-Millesi family say they were driving in their H2 Hummer when a Lexus struck by Jenner’s Cadillac Escalade slammed into their vehicle head-on. Jenner has already been sued by the adult stepchildren of Kimberly Howe — the driver of the Lexus, who was killed in the collision — and Jessica Steindorff, who was driving a Prius that was also involved in the crash. Although the I Am Cait personality was not charged with manslaughter or a misdemeanor by the Los Angeles district attorney, her legal troubles are far from over.

The Wolf-Millesis were hit head-on by a Lexus that was struck by Jenner’s Cadillac Escalade, which forced the vehicle into their lane of traffic on Pacific Coast Highway, they claim. Jenner has filed papers seeking to dismiss the suit filed by the Howe stepchildren, contending that they are adults who weren’t financially dependent on Howe. A third claims blunt force trauma … still the utmost critical is there was a month-old newborn within the Hummer who was “not responding at the scene.” The infant was taken to UCLA ClinicalMiddle & survived.

The suit states Peter Wolf-Millesi was driving his Hummer H2 southbound on PCH with his wife in the passenger seat, en route to his son’s tennis tournament. Jenner passed a field sobriety test and provided a blood sample for drug and alcohol testing following the crash, and will not face criminal charges relating to the collision. According to the suit, Jenner’s SUV rear-ended Howe’s Lexus LS 430, which launched into soutbound oncoming traffic and collided head-on with Wolf-Millesi’s vehicle. “All of a sudden a car comes into our lane from oncoming traffic and rushes onto our hood. Prosecutors declined to file a vehicular manslaughter charge against the 66-year-old Jenner, who was born as Bruce Jenner. “It is a devastating tragedy,” the statement read. “I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. The lawsuit claims Peter, a composer who earned a Grammy nomination as a producer and co-writer on Jefferson Starship’s 1985 hit song “We Built This City,” continues to suffer “severe nerve damage to his wrists and hands.” The suit says Lea requires ongoing orthopedic treatment and baby Gaetano had to be transported to UCLA’s emergency room following the accident. “We believed from the start that a thorough and objective investigation would clear Caitlyn of any criminal wrongdoing,” Jenner’s attorney Blair Berk told PEOPLE in a statement at the time. “We are heartened the District Attorney has agreed that even a misdemeanor charge would be inappropriate.

Perhaps most disturbingly, their month-old newborn was in the car as well, and was not responsive at the scene, leading the baby to be rushed to the hospital. A traffic accident, however devastating and heartbreaking when a life is lost, is not necessarily a criminal matter.” Jenner, 66, is facing other lawsuits related to the accident.

The legal documents further state, “The emotional effects of being involved in a collision that has taken the life of another has caused tremendous distress and suffering.” All is attributed to negligence by Jenner, whom the lawsuit blames for driving recklessly at an unsafe speed.
