Caitlyn Jenner filed a cross-complaint earlier this week, looking to place some of the responsibility for the fatal car crash last February on another driver.

Jenner's attorney filed the compliant with the Superior Court of California claiming that the driver, Jessica Steindorff, should be held "legally responsible for some or all of damages sought" by the occupants of the Hummer involved in the multi-vehicle collision.

The complaint, which ET has obtained, also argues that Jenner is "entitled to be indemnified or partially indemnified [by Steindorff] for any and all" damages she has to pay.

Steindorff, who drove the Prius that was involved in the crash, was stopped at a traffic light on the Pacific Coast Highway. Sixty nine-year-old Kim Howe, who was driving a Lexus sedan, was stopped behind Steindorff. Jenner rear-ended the Lexus, which careened into oncoming traffic and was struck by a Hummer. Howe died from her injuries at the scene of the crash.

At the time of the incident, Steindorff, 30, was reportedly driving with a suspended license. The Los Angeles County Sheriffs' investigation into the collision found that her driving did not result in or lead to the crash.

However in the complaint, Jenner's lawyers allege that Steindorff was inattentive and did not proceed when the traffic light turned green.

In June, Steindorff filed a personal injury lawsuit against Jenner, and the parties reportedly reached a settlement. The lawsuit filed against Jenner by the family in the Hummer that fatally struck Howe's Lexus is still ongoing.

The investigation by the Sheriff's department determined that Jenner was traveling below the speed limit at the time of the crash, but was still driving at an unsafe speed . However, Jenner was cleared of all criminal charges.
