Bruce Jenner Sued for Wrongful Death in Car Crash

It's been a dramatic year for Bruce Jenner to say the least.

Jenner has just been hit with a wrongful death lawsuit by the stepchildren of Kim Howe, the woman who died in a February car crash involving the 65-year-old former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.

Howe, a 69-year-old woman from Calabasas, Calif., was killed in a multi-car accident during which authorities said Jenner was driving north on Pacific Coast Highway in a Cadillac Escalade and rear-ended her Lexus sedan. The Lexus then veered into oncoming traffic, colliding with a black Hummer. Jenner was uninjured following the crash.

In the suit, filed by Dana Redmond and William Howe, the stepchildren claim Jenner was "careless, negligent, and reckless."

"The death of Kimberly Howe caused plaintiffs to suffer enormous damages and losses," the suit also reads. They are seeking unspecified damages.

Jenner has not been charged with any crime. He reportedly cooperated with authorities following the accident, passing a field sobriety test and volunteering to submit a blood sample for drug and alcohol testing. His rep also denied to the Associated Press in February that he was texting while driving.

In a joint statement to ET, the stepchildren's attorneys said:

"Kim Howe was the step-mother to Dana Redmond and William Howe for approximately 40 years. Even after their father's death ten years ago, Dana and William continued to have a close relationship with Ms. Howe. So far, no one has accepted responsibility for the collision that resulted in Ms. Howe's death. Her children feel an obligation to bring the truth to light and seek justice for Ms. Howe. This lawsuit is the only tool at their disposal that gives them the ability to do so."

Following the crash, Jenner called the incident "a devastating tragedy."

"I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time," he said in a statement. "I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible."
