The wrongful death case was filed Friday in Los Angeles by the stepchildren of Kim Howe, whose car was pushed into oncoming traffic after Jenner’s sport utility vehicle collided with it on Pacific Coast Highway in February.READ MORE: CHP Issues Sig Alert After Fatal Crash On 101 Freeway

Jenner’s publicist Alan Nierob declined comment.
In a statement released by his publicist in February, Jenner said: “My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loves ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident.”READ MORE: Street Closures From Electrical Pole Fire In Redondo Beach Lifted
