On Feb. 7, Jenner was part of a four-vehicle crash on the Pacific Coast Highway. Kimberly Howe, 69, was killed and seven others were injured.

Footage obtained by ET of the accident show Jenner's Cadillac Escalade, which was towing a trailer carrying an off-road vehicle, hitting both a white Lexus, driven by Howe, and a black Prius. It also appears to show Howe colliding with a black Hummer.

Jenner, who was uninjured in the crash, was named in a wrongful death suit filed May 1 by Howe's stepchildren, Dana Redmond and William Howe. In the suit, the stepchildren claim Jenner was "careless, negligent, and reckless." They are seeking unspecified damages.

"My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the families and loved ones and to all of those involved or injured in this terrible accident," Jenner said after the accident. "I will continue to pray for them and I will continue to cooperate in every way possible."
